Dear Sonship Pre-school,
Our daughter, Maya Urbina, will be attending your school and we would like to ensure that best efforts are made to keep her diet consistent with what she eats at home. We would like Maya to bring her daily snacks from home, and if any celebratory foods, such as cakes, are served to the class, we would like to know in advance.
After investing a great deal of time and energy in nutritional research, our family has chosen to deviate somewhat from the norm. Essentially, we have adopted a diet that prevents all processed carbohydrates, as we have sufficient evidence to believe that such foods are the primary cause of obesity, Type II Diabetes, and numerous other health problems.
Things we eat:
Vegetables - (except for potatoes, especially french fries)
Nuts - (except for peanuts)
Dairy - (cheese, yogurt, full-fat milk preferably)
Things we don't eat:
Grains - pasta, rice, bread, crackers
Sweets - cake, candy, etc
In general, we don't eat things that come in a box or a wrapper.
We greatly appreciate your understanding, and we hope this does not cause any complications for any of your staff. I am sure this is a challenge for you as much as it is for us. If there are certain foods that I should not pack in Maya's snack box, please let me know. Also, if there is any way I can help to make this easier for you, please let me know.
