- Mum is slammed for over-feeding her teenage son after sharing lunch photo
- The mum showed off a photo of her son’s lunchbox on a typical school day
- While many mums slammed her others revealed their kids eat the same amount
A mum has been slammed for sending her teenage son to school with too much food – with many parents claiming she is overfeeding the boy and teaching him bad habits.
The mum typically packs her son two sandwiches, three snack bars, two bananas, three peaches, grapes, a cucumber, two carrots, a handful of cherry tomatoes, biscuits, cheese and trail mix.
‘If I could fit more I would as he never stops eating,’ she wrote alongside a picture of his lunch.

But she was quickly slammed by parents who claimed the lunchtime spread was ‘too much’ and ‘going overboard’.
‘How many children is this for?’ one woman demanded.
‘Healthy choices, sure, but that is still a lot of food,’ said another.
The mum ended up editing her post to clarify the meal is for her 17-year-old son who loves heading to the gym and sports in general.
‘He needs a lot of fuel food,’ she said.
And other mums with teenage sons backed her up.
‘This is what active, healthy boys his age eat – you are a great mum, well done,’ one woman said.
‘I am impressed, you have taught your son some great eating habits,’ said another.
‘As a mum of three teenage boys I don’t see anything wrong with this,’ added another.
Some mums suggested high-protein snacks to help keep they boy full for longer while others questioned how ‘anyone’ affords teenagers.
Others said they had asked their husbands if the size of the lunch was appropriate.
‘My partner said at that age he just ate eight sandwiches, so this is much healthier,’ one woman wrote on the post.
The post was made in the popular Aldi Mums Facebook Page where it quickly went viral.
