This might be a bit of an overreaction. You be the judge.

Schools are cracking down to make sure children are eating healthier, but are some taking it too far?

According to Mirror, a mom in Australia was shamed by her 5-year-old son’s teacher for sending him to school with what she said was the “Worst breakfast ever.”

That Breakfast you ask? It was chocolate milk.

Mom, Constance, found out from her son, Arlo, that his teacher wouldn’t allow him to have his chocolate milk that she packed him earlier in the day.

“The teachers don’t let me have it,” Arlo told his mom. “They make me have it at lunchtime because they don’t think it’s healthy enough for recess.'”

Constance is a full-time working mom with six kids and doesn’t believe that parents should be shamed for what they feed their children.

“There are other mothers who can’t even afford to do lunch orders and then for them to get shamed about what they’re giving their kid for recess, I just don’t like it … It feels icky to me.”

We’re pretty sure there’s worse things to give your child for breakfast than chocolate milk.
