Mom leaves savage note in daughter's lunchbox after teacher told her how to eat her lunch

The note to the teacher has divided opinion online after going viral

A mom has left much of the internet divided over a savage note she left in her child's lunchbox for her teacher to read.

And this particular note has gone viral on social media after the mom involved revealed what happened in a TikTok video.

Business owner Caroline was left a little surprised after her daughter came home and explained what happened, so she decided to take matters into her own hands.

Caroline runs Pezzi ( - a company that makes eating utensils for small children.

The mom said that the teacher had allegedly made her daughter eat her food in a certain order.

That being starting with the 'good' foods first before moving on to the 'bad' foods.

In this particular lunchbox case, the sandwich and fruit were considered 'good', while the cookies were considered 'bad'.

In the caption to the viral TikTok, Caroline wrote: “My three-year-old came home from school yesterday, telling me that her teacher told her that she had to eat all of her 'good' foods before she ate her 'bad' foods.

“She couldn’t have her cookie before eating her sandwich and cucumbers.

“In this moment, I felt a little frustrated by the antiquated instruction from the teacher.

The lunchbox in question.
"I will say, this was not my internal dialogue growing up, but because of the information that I have from so many great accounts created by moms and experts, in the field of childhood and nutrition, I am armed with better responses, knowledge and practices for my kids."

She added: "Three years old. At three years old someone has told her that foods are good or bad.

“I am so proud that she sensed something was off - to know that was not right enough to tell me about it.”

"If you only eat carrots or broccoli your body won’t have protein it needs to grow strong muscles. If you only eat chicken, your body won’t have enough energy to do things like run and play all day long," the mom continued to say.

"We need little bits of everything to make sure that we are able to learn and play and grow all day long."

So, Caroline decided to write a note in her daughter's lunchbox for the next day.

The note has divided opinion.

"Hi! Evelyn has our permission to eat lunch in any order she chooses," she began.

“None of her foods are 'good' or 'bad' - they are just food!

“Thanks, Caroline and Joey.”

And people in the comments section have been left divided on the note.

"As a teacher, your response is 100 percent right," one person penned.

Another wrote: "As a former teacher, my thoughts was that the parents packed their kid's lunch with the intent they eat it; in whatever order or amount!"

Meanwhile, someone else added: "I’m sure the teacher wasn’t trying to be cruel."

To which Caroline replied: "I don't think she was trying to be cruel! I don't get to see the lunch teacher and didn't think the note was passive aggressive."
