School Calls Out Unhealthy Lunches in Newsletter

School Makes an Example of Kids' Lunches to Warn — and Shame — Parents

After school staff came across a variety of troublesome lunches, one principal is taking a stand and issuing a major warning to parents about taking their kids' health seriously.

Over the course of a few weeks, children were showing up at school with "worrying" packed lunches, including a cold McDonald's Happy Meal in one lunch bag and just four yogurts with a pack of candy in another. In order to prove his point, Jon Carthy, a principal at Byron Primary School in England, included these examples in a recent school newsletter.

"Whilst extreme and funny to read on paper, I must make this clear these are not acceptable examples of a balanced packed lunch," he wrote. "Children work very hard at school and a balanced meal at lunch time helps provide concentration for the afternoon."

The concerned principal also gave parents new guidelines for what they should pack for their child, including a portion of fruit and vegetables. "We have 525 children at the school and every single child took that letter home and it has been posted on the website," he told Kent Live. "I've only had positive comments back. Parents have said thank you and told me that someone needed to say this."
