    Hang on, the school said they'd still feed the kids and then apologises because people found that offensive?

    Am I reading that right? Feeding kids is now offensive?

    Who complained? The parents who failed to provide a lunch or lunch money?

    I wonder how many times some parents have had their kids fed for free by the school and now have absolutely NO incentive to pay or send their kids in with dinner money...

    Thats the trouble with today's parents.

    The school should stick to its buns.

    Jam? That'll be organic hummus, salad and a sprinkling of superfood nuts and seeds, surely?

    Nothing wrong with bread and butter so long as it's good fresh crusty bread. Trouble is, as it's bound to be a catering company flogging naff food at a profit, I bet they just get a slice of Mother's Pride and marge. Probably don't even bother to toast it.

    That would be buttered toast not bread and butter.

    Is that what Anne Robinson called her autobiography?

    No. That was Memoirs of an Unfit Mother.

    I remember in a spud famine in the late 50's we had bread instead of spuds for school dinners.
    And thin runny gravy!

    The entitlement of some people amazes me.

    Pupils are required to pay for school meals in advance. If the child forgets their money, the parent will be contacted. If the parent is unavailable, the child will not be left to go hungry, but the food will not be very exciting. Sounds fair enough to me!

    It is an incentive for a forgetful child who does not bring their dinner money, to be given bread and butter at this school. It does not seem a disproportionate response?

    It's hardly a scene from Oliver.

    Surely they could stretch to lard?

    Parent power. They should be grateful that anything is provided. There are plenty of people in the world that would be very thankful for bread, butter and a drink. Many more have to get by with a lot less.

    Parents today want the moon on a stick. Or on a baguette, in this case...
