I realize this is not a big deal but for some reason this just really got under my skin. Scott has been telling us that another boy at school has been eating some of his lunch. We've told Scott that his lunch is for him--not to "share" or give his lunch away. When DH took Scott in today, he just mentioned that Scott has been telling us others are eating his lunch but we aren't exactly sure what's happening or not (he's also been telling some tall tales lately).
The teacher then told DH that we needed to adjust what we are sending in for lunch--that there is too much sugar in it and that Scott is far too "active" in the afternoon (caused by the sugary lunch). DH said that the only sugar in his lunch is from fruit and the teacher agreed that it is natural sugar but still sugar...OMG! You are telling me not to pack fruit for my child?! You have GOT to be kidding me. And don't even get me started on the lack of research support for the effects of sugar on activity levels... He is a 3 year old boy. He's going to be active.
OK, I'm done. Just had to vent about an apple or an orange being "too sugary". (And yes, he has other food in there too--1/2 sandwich, milk, and a veggie)
