A mother who shared a picture of a typical school meal she prepares for her kids on a daily basis has been slammed and accused of overfeeding her children.
As seen in the picture below, the mum prepared several lunchboxes filled with sandwiches, pretzels, fruits, vegetables, chips, and brownies to make sure her kids wouldn’t be hungry.
After sharing the photo on Facebook, the Aussie mum triggered a backlash whereas fellow parents accused her of overfeeding her kids.
As the mother later on explained, the meals she prepared were for her four children, including two high school students, who always finish their meals.
In addition, the mother has revealed that her children are very active and claimed they aren’t overweight at all.
“Clearly some have their knickers in a twist… There is variety because even if your child enjoys eating the same food everyday, mine don’t and honestly, neither do I,” she wrote.
“There really is not a lot of food there. It is because of the variety of foods that people must be confused. This is for four children in total.”
Despite the explanation, dozens of people felt the need to criticize the mother and her decisions after the photo went viral.
“How do they have time to eat and play too,” someone wrote.
“The lunchbox with the sandwiches is about as much as I have ever packed… a sandwich, a piece of fruit and two other small snack items (maybe a muffin or some cheese and crackers) is the max I’ve done,” another one added.
However, not everyone agreed with the critics, whereas some people defended the mum and praised her for keeping her children well-fed.
“A whole load of you complaining while your own kids are most likely hungry at school. Good job mommy, keep them fed,” someone said.
