DS has said he has had honey sandwiches today for his lunch today. We had opted for the sandwich choice as he didn't like the hot dinner choices. but I was thinking more ham or cheese - not honey. Would you be cross too?

''but for the moment, he won't be allowed to choose sandwiches''

My goodness, talk about an overreaction.

It will be honey roast ham and he's made a mistake. There is not a 'fussy child' option for school lunches and school lunches are regulated and honey sandwiches would not be on the menu.

At my school we once had an oven malfunction so we chipped in and made tuna sandwiches, jam sandwiches and chocolate spread sandwiches. The children were delighted at the strange meal as a one off. It did them no harm.
You are overreacting.

My money's on honey roast ham too. Do let us know when you find out, it's quite a cute misunderstanding on both your parts!

He does know the difference between honey and ham! I have asked him and he says it looked a bit like marmalade. I don't think I am at all overreacting but you are entitled to your opinion.

Well it sounds like a rubbish lunch for the winter anyway. sad

I agree, it sounds like a rubbish filling for a sandwich lunch and would not be allowed at a state school as the sugar content of honey is too high!

Out of interest, here is a link to my local area's school lunch menu, which I think is excellent. I'm having everything from tomorrow's menu! I wish! smile

School has confirmed he had honey sandwiches so DS was not mistaken

How did they justify it?

They didn't. I don't want to make a big thing of it with the school as they do offer lots of choice and they know that DS is not to have this. But I am shocked that they could think that this is an acceptable sandwich as the school seems very good. Quite strict re what children can take in as a snacks etc

I would be irritated too op. I expect you are paying at least 2 quid a day for it too.
