A TikToker is winning praise online after sharing an angry note he left his kid’s school in response to their ‘non-healthy food policy.’

The father, who goes by @teddyevascents on TikTok, was frustrated that his kids had been “getting sh*t off one of the dinner ladies” at their school about their lunch choices. 

Branding the dinner ladies’ comments “f*cking irritating,” he added that the feedback from the dinner ladies was putting his daughter off eating her lunch.

He added that his daughter was even put off bringing a packed lunch altogether, which prompted him to write a note.

The note was intended to prove she had full parental approval over the food she was eating, so comments wouldn’t be necessary.

The dad added that he felt extra compelled to write it given that the school lunch options weren’t always any healthier.

“It’s alright if you eat the chocolate cake the school gives you, but you put one in their lunchbox they go ‘oh you shouldn’t have that’,” he said.

“Welcome to my daughter’s lunchbox! We are aware of the contents of this box and our happy for our daughter to eat whatever she wants,” the note read.

Just to hammer the point home, the dad added a picture of his daughter to the label so that it was clear the lunch was hers and he’d given it the okay.

The father actually made another note to go in his daughter’s lunchbox – one a lot more riled than the first.

The second read: “Step away from the lunchbox you nosey f**king a*** bandit.”

However, luckily his partner persuaded him not to include that one…

“My son and daughter are so conscious about what they eat due to the school promoting ‘healthy eating’,” said one parent in the comments.

Whilst another wrote: “It’s a nightmare they promote healthy eating but my child comes home saying they had pizza and chips and some cake so which part of that is heathy.”

Even someone who had once worked in a school agreed, writing: “Worked in a school which served cake but we had to confiscate a penguin bar from a kids lunchbox as it’s not [allowed]… it’s silly tbh.”

“You should sell these labels!,” suggested someone else, as a fifth chimed in: “I freakin LOVE your response to the teachers. Way to go dad.”

We’re all for promoting healthy lifestyle choices, but if a parent has chosen a meal, probably best not to make the kid feel bad about it?
