It all started with good intentions.

A mother, who goes by Peavey Megan on TikTok, sent her 3-year-old son to school with a small bag of snacks.

Later, she picked him up from preschool (which she was paying for). As she prepared her son’s lunchbox for the next day, she found one of his empty pringles cartons and saw a note contained within:

It said, “Please help us make healthy choices at school.”

Megan was angry about the message, “They snack-shamed me and snack-shamed my son by writing this passive-aggressive note on his trash.”

She said she wished they had just reached out to her directly if they had an issue with his food. She added that he went to school with a granola bar, yogurt, and fruit. It wasn’t just chips.
