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.
