The Mirror reports that headteacher issued a newsletter to parents this week after a number of ‘extreme and unacceptable’ packed lunches had been given to kids at his school in Kent.
Jon Carthy, head of Byron Primary School in Kent, issued a newsletter to parents this week after a number of ‘extreme and unacceptable’ packed lunches had been given to kids at the school.
These included a cold McDonald’s Happy Meal which was purchased the previous evening, two bags of crisps and a crisp sandwich, four yogurts and a packet of Smarties, and one chocolate muffin, a chocolate roll and a bar of chocolate.
The letter mentioned four meals that had been brought in by children to highlight how bad some lunchboxes are.
“Children work very hard at school and a balanced meal at lunch time helps provide concentration for the afternoon.”
