Jessica Gianoni told the Adelaide Advertiser she felt the note was ‘very condescending’ and would have preferred that the teacher talk to her directly about any concerns she had with her daughter, Isabel, 4.
‘As a parent, I should be able to choose what my child should have,’ she said.
‘She had a container of fruit including a banana, a sandwich and rice crackers. It wasn’t like the cake was the only thing she had to eat.’
This comes only weeks after another Adelaide mum-of-eight received a judgmental note with a frowny face that told her she couldn’t give her daughter a home-made chocolate slice to take to school.
The school that issued the notorious ‘frowny face’ note has offered the mother an apology.
