    There is encouragement, and then there is force. Back the fuck off.

Some times we also send her with bran wholewheat bread with some nutella in it. Well we noticed she was coming home sometimes without having touched these items in her lunch, so my wife asked her why, and she said her teacher told her she wasn't allowed to eat them. WAT (Steam out the ears)
    My wife phoned the school and spoke with the v-principal only to find out that yes, the teacher told her she can't eat this because "we try to instill healthy eating habits to the children". My wife told her, yes, that's lovely, but they don't HAVE to do as you say and she is going to eat what we give her.
    "oh, okay, well I guess I'm going to have to look into it".

    This is becoming more common in Ontario schools for some reason. I've heard a few more stories from a teacher friend of mine who has witnessed other teachers tell some children they couldn't eat their lunch because it wasn't deemed "healthy" by the teacher. In one instance the teacher told the child to just drink water instead of eat lunch. I raged hard when I heard that. I agree it is up to the parents to provide a balanced lunch and not just stick them with leftover McD's or KFC from the night before everyday or a pack of twinkies as a main source of food, but the teachers have no right to tell a child not to eat their food unless it's poison or something.

    there was this story either out of ontario or VC, that a fob filipino kid was bullied by teachers and students cause he ate with his hands... why cant people just leave others alone if it doesnt have anything to do with themselves or puts them in any sort of danger
