AIBU to think that schools should make their mind up? My DGC's school are forever brainwashing the children about healthy lifestyles. My DGC are becoming obsessed (yes that is the right word) about food labels, with my 7 yr old (Gracie) reading the back of a packet of popcorn at my mums last night telling me it had too much carbohydrate and sugar for the overall weight and was therefore an amber food. She thought she had better not eat it! She then told off her younger brother for having a donut (my mum makes a traditional tea, for them when they visit) again telling him there was too much sugar, fat, carbohydrate in them.
After tea we were sitting around chatting and she announced that the new dinner nanny had confiscated her (much loved) skipping ropes from her at lunch time saying that they weren't approved and could be dangerous! She was very upset and asked how a skipping was dangerous. Apparently (I wasn't there but she is a very truthful child) the dinner nanny said she was a very cheeky girl and "she" would decide what was dangerous and what wasn't and went in to remove the offending skipping ropes.
I spoke with DiL last night and suggested she ring the school and ask their policy on healthy children and exercise. Would the school rather they all sat about at play time? Perhaps if they all just lay down it would make life so much easier. No danger there. My GC are sporty children. They love running, jumping, riding, gymnastics, football in fact any kind of sport or physical activity.
I am very annoyed at the school who seem to promoting healthy eating but disapproving healthy activities. Surely one goes with the other doesn't it?
