    Fruit break

    Shop Now
    Surely something is seriously wrong when the kindy hands a letter to all the parents saying they need to bring a piece of fruit (even has no processed or canned fruit in brackets) for fruit break.
    Don't all parents send fruit to school? Even ones who follow cw?

    Maybe its not so strange. I knew about it, so they must have told us at some point anyway.

    no. sometimes i dont bother. i get very sick of throwing uneaten squashed fruit away on a daily basis. too much fructose is not such a good thing.

    I'll send a chunk of liver carved into an apple shape if it makes them happy.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I highly doubt it.
    Snacktime when I was a kid usually featured Little Debbie snackcakes. I used to have some anger at my parents for stuff like that, but I've gotten over it since it's really pointless now that I'm well into my 20s. Not to mention every other kid's parents gave them that as well, and the last thing I wanted to be was the odd one out.
    Even times when the teachers provided snacks for special occasions it'd be cheap, highly processed, sugary junkfood. Talk about growing up in a toxic environment!

    Oh your kids don't like it?
    I always send an apple and some strawberries or one other.
    Not a huge amount of fruit.

    my kids sometimes do and sometimes dont but organic fruit is way too expensive to just bin. i'd rather keep it for home when i can feed it to them for a snack or dessert. apples arent so bad as i can always give the leftovers to the horse. not that she needs the fructose either.

    in our kindy, they say the same -- but this is for shared fruit. The kids cut it up and have a fruit picnic. They also have rice balls or buns (gluten free) which they make, and they also have their own lunches. Our letter says which days are rice and which are buns, that fruit needs to be sent or a gold coin donation given, and that lunch is to be packed.

    I don't think it's necessarily because parents are not sending snacks or fruit.
