Mom Wrote Powerful Note To Son’s Teacher Using The Lid Of An ‘Unhealthy Lunchbox’

A clever way to battle criticism!

The woman’s son, autism makes him struggle with some foods due to his sensory issues, hence she packs food she’s sure he can excitedly consume.

The mother filled the little box’s Tupperware with crackers, sweetcorn, popcorn, an apple, and crisps ahead of the school day. But his teachers’ weren’t satisfied with what she packed.

Judged by other mothers and teachers for the contents in her son’s lunchbox, the woman reached a consensus deciding enough was enough.

The mother, from Australia, came up with a tricky way to inform her son’s teachers on his carefully chosen foods for lunch. On a blue lid of the lunch box, the woman wrote a note in the hope her son’s teachers would finally understand why she normally packs his lunch with such food.

‘Please be patient with me as I work through my sensory issues’

‘My lunch box might not look very healthy, but it’s all I will eat. Please be patient with me as I work through my sensory issues.’ The mom wrote using a permanent marker on the blue lid of the lunch box.

Sharing a photo of the strong message to Facebook, the woman said as awesome as her child is, she most of the time also struggles to put together healthy meals he will enjoy eating.

The woman explained: ‘He’s not able to quite articulate exactly why he has never had a sandwich or perhaps a wrap for lunch. He prefers to munch on popcorn.’

Immediately, she was flooded with supportive comments. A Facebook user wrote: ‘As long as you don’t take lollies or chocolate, I don’t see why some things are then a big problem.’

A second added; ‘Looks very healthy babe. I so much love your note, it’s awesome and I am going to borrow it for my boy. I admire your fight for your son.’
