Toddler suspended from day care for bringing a cheese sandwich

Toddler Suspended from Day Care for Bringing a Cheese Sandwich
A 2-year-old has been suspended from daycare because she brought a cheese sandwich along with her. HLN has the details.

'The daycare in Ottawa, Canada, says it doesn't allow outside food to protect kids who have allergies there. The little girl's dad said he didn't know she had taken the sandwich with her.'

Faith's father, Randy Murray, told CBC he didn't even realize his daughter had the sandwich with her when walking into the daycare center.

'She was two steps in, one of the teachers had saw it, handed it back to me, and then the next thing I know, I'm told we're suspended for three days.'

Murray says he didn't know about the food policy, and although it was written in French on a sign, he doesn't speak the language well.

The daycare's director told the Ottawa Sun all parents are made aware of the rule before registering their children and that the center has also reminded parents about the rule in the school's monthly newsletters.

The punishment could have been worse, though. Ottawa Sun says the school's food policy states children will be kicked out of the daycare if they bring any food with nuts into the school.

Murray says he's considering pulling Faith and his 4-year-old son from the daycare facility.

You have to Sign In first to leave a comment.a simple reminder would have done who are they punishing with the suspension..don't know that I would continue using this daycare would look for another that had some compassion and empathy for the family ever tried to get a 2 yo and a 4yo ready in the morning while getting geared for work yourself...come on the little one probably thought she had done a good thing by making her own sandwich...

My son is allergic to apples and cinnamon. No place he has ever gone to school has banned those foods but they do ban peanuts. You cannot ban every food that someone is allergic to, I understand that. We just have to be very careful and bring an Epi-Pen with us plus keep one at school.

Thank You. Its really not that hard people. And Im sure you tell your son not to eat them. Common sense. Why do we need the schools to start making their own lunches and snacks and paying extra for it? Why cant there be more parents like you who educate their child and send him with a pen and life is good?

Schools are trying to create menus with as few allergens and most nutrition for liability issues. If a kid eats the wrong thing on their property, THEY are legally liable whether they supply it or not. You can blame litigious, irresponsible parents for that--you know, like idiots who enroll kids in schools and ignore that school's policies.

BLAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. OMG WOW! It is pre-school for crying out loud! Ah, no wonder. Its the terri-bad part of Canada. I imagined one of those obnoxious types teachers you see in the movies grabbing the sandwich and sending them home. One of the anal re-tentative ladies that is secretly into S&M. The ones who are more concerned about 'disciplining' kids than educating them :)

A cheese sandwich ? Good Grief ! That's ALMOST as bad as pointed your trigger finger at somebody ! How DARE a little kid act like a little kid ! It's NOT allowed in any way, shape or form. The child might "offend" someone. We live in an insane world, Orwell was right, 1984 is HERE ! It was just a bit late arriving, took awhile longer to dumb people down to this point.

this world is getting ridiculous ,suspended a child for bringing a sandwich to school, a warning would have been enough! If it happen more than one time than i could see suspending ,every body thinks they have to teach a lesson and think there king **** and don't think of the consequences

A reminder of the rules would have sufficed. Suspension was not necessary. Schools today are abusing power in the name of safety and well-being.
