I'm sorry your children have dietary issues....
No need to feel sorry for my kid coz she can't ingest gluten (which means wheat, barley, rye & oats ++++) but like I suggested you Googling coeliac disease
because you'll learn it's a shedload more than a "dietary issue" - it's a freaking disease, derrr!
Now DA - go and read my post, again.
If you're going to be saying 'sorry' for anything let it be to me for not reading my post correctly! As you're such a huge fan of the [quote] feature here how about you quote where I said I expect to 'repressing the masses'
and 'expecting everyone else to fall into line to match your expectations and your needs '
. Walk me through where I said that? Humour me.
Right now you've worked out that's not what I said at all, what my post was about was your ignorance and tone (and petty gripe should the truth be known.)
3 yr old attended the CC that your girls go to the ONLY reason for any appointment I had with the Director would be to ensure that a staff member observed my child whilst eating...meaning they all sit around (like they do) and be overseen by a member of staff. That's all
I would be asking for. Over my cold dead body would I trust a CC canteen to cater for my childs meal - I'm the mother, that's my problem.
So for that exact reason I wouldn't be one of the parents that are complaining at your CC, I would have always run my race with my childs lunchbox so what gets done in the kitchen is of little interest to me.
You to me are one of those Dads that if your 3 yr old had an airborne anyphylactic peanut kid (for example) in her class you would begrudge not being able to maybe smear that mornings toast with peanut butter for DD, the whole while thinking "Sheesh why should *I* have to care because some kid could die if my DD breathed on him/her" and for that reason alone people like you infuriate me. It's ignorance and quite simply put it's dipping well laziness! I'm not in agreeance that the kitchen ban hot lunches on the back of allergies/intollerances ~~ I never said that, ever!
To the PP that couldn't find the word "Nazi" - it was there but clearly mods have (rightfully!) edited his title as well as content of his OP.
Nicole - I hear ya on the tuckshop thing too...but my reason is different. Now that Mac can't have 'normal' bread IYKWIM I no longer keep bread in the house - my waistline loves me for it. LOL That means I'll order Em's lunch at the canteen (therefore supporting the fundraising efforts of the school and
providing full-time employment for the Manager of the tuckshop!!) so bread doesn't live here and if it doesn't live here I can't eat it, I'm a carb queen after all. ROFL So a win/win for us really.....Em gets super fresh sannies everyday (although today she took last nights roast pork & roast vegges, YUM!) and she gets a nice variety. Also one day a week they do hot lunch (pizza) and I let her have this as they're healthily made and that's another meal we don't have here because of Mac IYKWIM? Nothing wrong with supporting the tuckshop my girl, like I said win/win all round.
