Mum shares a picture of the 'perfect' (and realistic) school lunchbox – and hundreds of other parents praise her | The Sun

A MUM has been praised for her honesty after sharing a picture of what she deemed the "perfect" packed school lunch.

She took to Facebook to post the image of her child's metal lunchbox, which contained some goldfish biscuits, a sandwich, half an apple, a cheese string and a few Skittles.

"Normalising mediocre lunches over here," she said.

"This is my kindergartener's lunch most days."

The post was quickly commented on by hundreds of other parents, many of whom admitted their kids' lunches were similarly simple.

"Honestly, a lot of kids eat better when their meals look simple," one mum wrote.

"My six-year-old eats his simple lunches more than the extravagant, overly full ones – I think it overwhelms him and can do the same to a lot of other children as well!'

"My daughter is so picky and refuses to touch something new, especially when she isn't at home," a dad agreed.

"It's easier for everyone to just send some of her comfort foods and call it a day."

While someone else commented: "I am proud to be of the working mums who don't have time to cut out shapes and make gourmet lunches for my child every day."
