    ‘He doesn’t share his food’: Parents turn on mum who wants to send her child to school with peanut butter and raw nuts

    • A mum was slammed as she wants to pack peanut butter and nuts for her son
    • The Australian woman said her son loves nuts and has no allergy to them at all
    • Others were quick to say their kids have extremely sensitive allergies to nuts
    • Previously, dietitian Susie Burrell revealed what to pack for the perfect lunchbox 










    A mum has been slammed by parents after saying she wants to send her son to school with a lunchbox that contains peanut butter sandwiches and nuts.

    The Australian woman posted on Facebook, where she said her school-age son is ‘addicted’ to peanut butter and raw nuts, and he can’t go a day without them and has no allergies. 

    ‘Why is this forbidden in school and kinder? My son doesn’t share his food,’ the woman unwittingly wrote. 

    ‘Do other kids get allergies from the smell?’

    It wasn’t long before dozens of other parents – many of whom had children with nut allergies – weighed in and said the mother was being unfair even considering giving her son nuts.

    ‘Other children can have a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction simply by touching a surface that a child who has touched peanuts without washing their hands has touched,’ one parent posted.

    Another added: ‘If my child was to pick up a pencil that your child has previously used after eating nuts, she would have an anaphylactic reaction.

    ‘Our daughter’s school is nut-free and it definitely helps ease my mind knowing that she is somewhat safer there.’

    Others highlighted that nut allergies can be ‘potentially fatal’, and the woman should avoid feeding her son nuts in a school setting, and instead give them to him at home.

    ‘Just leave the nut stuff at home, it’s not that hard when a child’s life is at risk,’ one mum wrote.

    Another mum added: ‘Kids hold hands and touch each other. It is a small sacrifice for safety’.

    Previously, a dietitian revealed exactly what to pack in your child’s school lunchbox in order to keep them satiated and well-nourished throughout the school day. 

    Susie Burrell, from Sydney, said there are many foods you should be including in your children’s midday meal, but she finds it easiest to follow a quick and easy four-step formula. 

    ‘With my twins back to school, I thought a little lunchbox inspiration may be handy for parents,’ Susie posted on Instagram.

    Susie’s formula means you should always ensure you have a sandwich, wrap or salad with protein in their box, as well as fruit and veggies, a protein-rich snack and one ‘fun and yummy item’.

    For a protein-rich snack, Susie favours yoghurt or cheese, while her favourite ‘something yummy’ foods are healthy chocolate digestives, protein balls, chocolate rice cakes and healthy chips.

    This particular week, Susie is feeding her twins two wraps with chicken, cucumber and hummus as their main meal.

    The twins will then enjoy some yoghurt, cherry tomatoes, cut-up cucumber, a satsuma and half a banana for their healthy snacks.
