An Australian mother has faced online criticism from other parents for a small detail about the ingredients in her son’s school lunchbox.
Tara was delighted with the lunch she prepared for her little ones, which included sandwiches, yogurt, grapes, biscuits with Vegemite, popcorn and some red pickled onions.
But after an image was shared in the Aldi Mums Facebook group, the ham, cheese and mayonnaise sandwich was quickly criticized by others.
A mother questioned whether a ham sandwich was safe during Australia’s scorching heat, as it could cause ‘food poisoning’ if left in a child’s bag until lunchtime.

The woman wrote, ‘Never gave meat to my children in their school lunches in the summer heat.’
‘Even if you put a brick of ice in her lunch box she quickly overheats. what each class needs [is] A small fridge so the kids can take their lunch inside.
‘If they just go without a food item they won’t get sick, but there can be food poisoning from meat that has set off. There are many other foods that you can use as substitutes.
Another mother encouraged and encouraged Tara to ‘beware of the summer heat’ as it can affect the food not kept in the fridge.
“They really need to supply fridges to classrooms so that the kids can keep their lunch and drinks there,” he said.
Tara responded quickly and said that she keeps an ice pack with the lunchbox to keep food cold, claiming that it is ‘usually still cold’ after school.

Despite conflicting opinions, many supported Tara and were disappointed by the filthy criticism.
‘Back when we went to school your ham sandwich was out in the sun in your lunchbox without a cold pack in your school bag. We must have been strict then,’ wrote one person.
‘It looks great, especially those pickled onions! I love looking at Instagram for lunch ideas.
A third added: ‘When I was a kid I used to eat ham sandwiches at school, not ice bricks, I lived to tell the story.’
‘It’s a wonderful, balanced lunch, well done,’ another said praising Tara.
