A MUM has been ridiculed for giving her son TOO much food in his lunchbox.
Her post went viral on the Aldi Mums page in Australia where she revealed that she would normally pack; two sandwiches, three snack bars, two bananas, three peaches, grapes, a cucumber, two carrots, cherry tomatoes, biscuits, cheese and a nutty trail mix for her teenage son.

Sharing a picture of his mega lunch, she wrote: “If I could fit more I would as he never stops eating.”
Other parents commented on the snap, saying that the lunch offering was ‘too much’ and that she was ‘going overboard’.
“How many children is this for?” one woman demanded, shocked that the lunch could be for only one teenager.

“Healthy choices, sure, but that is still a lot of food” another added, as the lunch provided far more than the recommended daily portions of fruit and vegetables.
The mum had to remind her followers that her son is a very active 17-year-old who plays sports and goes to the gym often which means: “He needs a lot of fuel food.”
Fellow mums with ravenous teenage sons supported the mums woes over whether she was over feeding her growing son and showed their allegiance with her.

“As a mum of three teenage boys I don’t see anything wrong with this,” added another.
“I am impressed, you have taught your son some great eating habits,” said another.
“This is what active, healthy boys his age eat – you are a great mum, well done,” one woman supportively commented.
Fellow mums on the post suggested she add some high protein snacks to the lunchbox like jerky or eggs.
While others had shown the picture to their husbands to gauge how much they ate as a teenager.
They said they would often get through up to 8 sandwiches in one sitting, so this mothers lunch box was far healthier than their adolescent meals.
Many agreed that the amount of food teenagers gets through makes them expensive, and questioning “how does ANYONE afford teenagers?”
