Nanny Is Mother, Nanny Is Father - The Lunchbox Inspectors

My thanks to a loyal reader who pointed me to an article in the Mirror (the paper that thinks it more newsworthy to entrap a foolish MP into sending a picture of his meat and two veg, than to report on more pressing matters such as the war in the Middle East) about Caen Community Primary School in Devon, which is removing food such as chocolate, crisps and fizzy drinks from pupils' lunchboxes.

For why?

Seemingly the school is acting on advice from the NHS and the Children's Food Trust.

Those lunchboxes that contain "Red" foods (eg colas etc) are confiscated until the end of the day, and the child given a healthy alternative. Those lunchboxes that contain "Amber" foods (eg white bread) give rise to a warning letter sent to parents.

All of this may be perfectly well intentioned, but it rather misses two points:

1 It is not Nanny's role to bring up other people's kids

2 The contents of a lunchbox does not give rise to an obese child, it is the daily diet and exercise regimen of a child that determines the size of that child. Unless Nanny intends to dictate the latter this policy will fail.

    By what authority is the school dictating what children can or cannot eat? That should be down to the parents decision, not some interfering jobsworth! This country is getting more like a police state every day!

      My Lord,

      This school has taken it to another level!

      Adolf and Stalin will be so proud.

    Any father who allows this to happen without going to the school and shoving the 'offending ' lunchbox down the head teacher's throat is not worthy of calling himself a man.
