Mom fined $10 for not including grains in her child’s lunchbox

Kristen Bartkiw was given a $10 fine when she sent her kids to daycare with a lunchbox containing carrots, potatoes and roast beef.

There was fruit, vegetable and meat in the lunch box but since grain was missing so she invited a $10 fine on herself.

She had to pay this amount so that the teacher could give Ritz crackers to the kids as a supplement for grains in the absence of it in the lunchbox.

She said that she didn’t blame the daycare as she was one of the members of the board of The Little Cub's Den when they came up with a decision to fine parents for improper meals.

A provincial government statement read that the province needs all child-care centres to make sure those children have nutritious and balanced diet and healthy snacks all day. This can be provided by either the institute or parents.

The Manitoba Early Learning and Child Care says that when at a childcare a youngster's lunch must incorporate a milk item, a meat, a grain and two servings of apples and oranges or vegetables.

It also says that in the event that any food essential is missing from the lunch given the childcare provider should give a supplement to compensate.
