Proud mum shows off ‘picky’ two-year-old’s lunchbox but it instantly makes others ‘freak out’
PARENTS will never agree on what makes up the perfect lunchbox, but one mum has been slammed after showing off her "picky" daughter's seemingly perfect meal.
The Aussie mum shared a snap of the two-year-old's packed lunch online which includes a range of healthy snacks and treats -but some people were quick to comment on an alarming food choice.
The lunch box was packed with tomatoes, cucumbers, popcorn, salt-free pretzels, cheese, pickles and sandwiches with jam and meat, as well as rice cakes and pizza sticks.
But some parents instantly took aim at the whole grapes and tomatoes admitting it made them "freak out".
Many mums criticised the food choice insisting they were a "chocking hazard" and warn they should always be cut and never served whole.
“Looks great! Just a heads up for next time, anything shaped like grapes, cherry tomatoes, etc should be quartered lengthwise,” one mum commented on the post.
And added: “Whole grapes are the perfect size to get stuck in kiddo’s windpipes!”
But she wasn't the only one as another mum said: “I just freak out when I see whole grapes. Just wouldn‘t take the chance”.
A third agreed, also taking aim at the popcorn: "I said the same thing about the popcorn."
But some didn't seem too concerned, including the mum who posted who responded with "No, I don’t need to cut those in half” followed by a tongue out emoji.
I just freak out when I see whole grapes. Just wouldn‘t take the chance.
“My daughter will only eat them if they’re whole,” one mum said.
While others said their children complained about the slimy texture of cut grapes.
“Honestly I wouldn’t serve them then until she gets older,” another insisted. “I’ve never offered them to my daughter whole but I’m sure she’d prefer them that way as well (I know I would!).”
According to News.com.au, a paediatrician previously warned parents to cut their grapes in half – particularly if buying larger varieties.
Dr Luke Sammartino warned he’d seen cases where larger grapes had been swallowed whole by children and become lodged in their throats.
