Hilarious notes left by dads in packed lunches

Messages left by parents for their children in packed lunches have been shared on social media

 

A number of mums and dads have taken to writing small notes to encourage their children to finish their sandwiches and snacks.

Some have even used threats, persuasion and little white lies to make sure they don’t go hungry.

One father used the hashtag #Dadfact in an effort to bribe his child into eating their sandwiches using information that might not be completely reliable.

He scribbled on a napkin: “Every time you don’t eat your sandwich a unicorn dies #Dadfact Love, Dad”. 

When it comes to making sure children eat the crusts on sandwiches, one parent wrote: “I left the crusts on. Today is the first day of the rest of your life.”

Another dad wrote: “New rule: I will keep packing this sandwich until you eat it. Good luck. Love, Dad.” 

According to NHS Choices, a balanced lunchbox should contain starchy foods like bread, rice, potatoes or pasta, along with protein-rich foods and a dairy item.

It is also recommended that vegetables or salad and a portion of fruit are included.

Every five, six and seven- year-old in England is now receiving a free school meal every day.

Former Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg introduced the scheme last September.

Experts says that a healthy meal at lunch time greatly improves the health, behaviour and results of schoolchildren.

It is reported that the free meals will help to save parents £400 per child on lunches annually.
