    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:


    Fruits

    Vegetables - (except for potatoes, especially french fries)

    Nuts - (except for peanuts)

    Dairy - (cheese, yogurt, full-fat milk preferably)

    Meat


    Things we don't eat:


    Grains - pasta, rice, bread, crackers

    Sweets - cake, candy, etc

    Fruit juices

    Low-fat dairy

    Deep-fried anything


    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.


    Sincerely,


    Sofia Wahaj

    I don't have kids, but if I did I'd totally be using a copy of this letter for my kids. Who knows, maybe in the future. Very well written.

    You need to get on some parenting websites and post that. There will probably be lots of balking about the fruit juice and low-fat dairy products being on the list, but hey, just the NOTHING FROM A BOX requirement would be a huge step in the right direction for most people.

    Awesome job. Kudos!

    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    I too agree with your letter. Never ever forget when you child goes into 'school' the parents have the 'say' first. I have always said, "I'm the mother I have 2 votes to your 1 vote".

    I presume "Sonship" is a Christian school.


    But your daughter is named Maya, a Hindu/Sanskrit term meaning, in the bottom line, "illusion."


    I've no problem with such a paradox, just an observation.
