Can you spot why mum will 'get in trouble' over school lunchbox?

Can you spot why this worried mum thinks she will ‘get in trouble’ from her son’s school for his lunchbox?

  • A mum is worried that she will be reprimanded over her son’s lunchbox 
  •  The lunchbox contained fresh fruit, a sandwich, yoghurt and cheese for her son
  • But the school has a nude food policy which means there should be no plastic

A mother who shared a photo of her son’s lunchbox online has revealed why she is likely to get into ‘trouble’ for sending it to school.   

At first glance the lunchbox looks well balanced with fresh fruit, a wholegrain sandwich, yoghurt, protein bar, cheese stick and popcorn.

But eagle-eyed mums new exactly what the school’s problem with the lunchbox would be – too much packaging.

A mum has shared a picture of her son’s lunchbox and revealed she is likely to get in ‘trouble’ for sending it to school

The mum wrote alongside the picture: ‘No doubt will get in trouble for packaging. Our school has zero bins for students.’

One mother advised her to ‘take the stuff out of the packets and pop it in the sections’.  

Another said: ‘I find it easier to buy most stuff in bulk rather than individually wrapped so I can minimise the rubbish. The stuff that is wrapped I open and put in the lunchbox because we have no bins at school.’

But the mum said her son has some sensory issues so it was difficult to eliminate packaging all together. 

Others tried to reassure her, saying that she wouldn’t get in strife.

‘They’ll just bring it home. They won’t get in trouble. My kids’ school has bins for lunch rubbish and my kid still brings home their cheese  dip snack rubbish.’

Another agreed.

‘They don’t have food scrap bins anymore, they eat in the classroom and all the rubbish comes home,’ she said. 

 One mum said communication is key.

‘Just let them know the wrappers have to go back in the lunchbox. Our school has all bins in classrooms, recycle (for soft plastic), and green waste. Anything that doesn’t fit in those categories comes home,’ she said.

‘The yoghurt pouch would be the only rubbish and maybe you could just get a container for that.’

WHAT IS NUDE FOOD? 

Schools around Australia have embraced the nude-food trend and encourage students to bring a rubbish-free lunch.

Nude food is food that comes to school without disposable packaging – extra plastic bags, paper bags, wrappings, plastic water bottles or cling wraps.

Australia is the second-highest producer of waste per person in the western world – a factor which has lead to many schools adopting the policy.
