Teacher Threw Away Child’s Lunch When She Saw This In Her Tiffin.

Source: Reddit

I’m (20f) babysitting my niece (4f) for the week while my sister is on a business trip.

My niece misses her mom so to cheer her up, I put a couple treats in her lunch. Her lunch was:

  1. A turkey and cheese sandwich with cucumbers and avocado. I also drew some cartoon characters on it with edible markers
  2. Carrot sticks and ranch
  3. Apple slices
  4. Cookie
  5. Fruit snacks
  6. Brownie
  7. Juice box

Clearly not the healthiest but also this is a special treat and she has all 5 food groups. I dropped my niece off at 9 and at 10 (snack time) I got a call from the teacher saying I had to drop off a new lunch because my niece’s food was too unhealthy. I told her to give my niece the fruits or vegetables if she has a problem with the treats and she told me she threw away the lunch because it was distracting to the other kids.

I decided to call the office and tell them that I needed to pull my niece out for an appointment at 11 (lunch is at 11:30) and that she’d be back by the end of lunch.

So at 11, I picked her up, we got happy meals, cookies, fruit snacks, and milkshakes. Then at 12 (end of lunch) I dropped her off with her happy meal box and her almost finished milkshake.

Teacher saw this and was fuming. I guess she told my sister what happened because shortly after, I got a call from my sister saying I was being petty and should’ve just dropped off a new sandwich.

Am I A Jerk for pulling my niece out and filling her up on sugar because her teacher threw away her lunch?
