Aldi shoppers were forced to back a mum after she was blasted for a detail in her child’s school lunch.
The woman shared a snap of the meal on an Aldi Facebook group which included a sandwich, grapes, biscuits, yoghurt and popcorn.
She thanked the popular German retail for its handy lunchbox and container.
However many on the page couldn’t help but notice the child’s ham and mayonnaise sandwich.
One user was concerned about serving a ham sandwich in a lunchbox during warm weather, saying it could cause food poisoning.
She said: “Never gave my children meat on their school lunches in the summer heat.”
The user warned: “Even if you put an ice brick in their lunch box it soon gets hot.
“What each class room needs [is] a small fridge so kids can put their lunch in.
“They won’t get sick if they go without just one food item, but could get food poisoning from meat that has gone off.
“Plenty of other food items you can use as substitute.”
Meanwhile another group member wrote: “Mayo on ham?! Ew.”
But luckily many other users came to the mum’s defence after she received negative comments.
One woman wrote: “I had ham sandwiches at school when I was a kid, not ice bricks, I lived to tell the tale.”
The anonymous mum also added that the Aldi container helps keep sandwiches fresh.
She wrote: “He hasn’t complained at all and they do seem fresh when he doesn’t eat them and I get them home.
Others said the people who criticised the mum were just being “rude”.
As another claimed the ham and mayonnaise sandwich combo was her “favourite as a kid”.
