Mom Shamed For Sending Unacceptable Snack: Raisins

An Australian mom of a kindergartener packed what she thought was a healthy lunch for her child:  sandwich roll, two boiled eggs, an orange, kiwi fruit, and a handful of sultanas (golden raisins).  She never includes packaged food or refined sugar.  

Kathryn Hawkins, a dietitian and mom, came to the parent's defense:  "If your child enjoys sultanas and feels happy when eating them, then that is a great choice for them. If you are a busy working household and grabbing a box of  sultanas for the lunchbox makes it a bit easier for you, then it is a great choice for you.  You DO NOT have to feel one bit guilty for putting a box of sultanas in your child's lunch and you DO NOT have to 'explain' why."

I never liked raisins but my mom always gave my little brother raisins.  I never thought they were bad.  I wonder what their policy is on grapes.
