    I feel quite sorry for the lad... :(

    I'll tag in someone who knows about this stuff, who would definately have great options for a GM free packed lunch . @Celeriac

    What an excellent wind up!

    Actually, sounds just like my wheat, dairy and sugar free childhood.

    But don't worry kid - it can always get worse.

    These stories have to be put in perspective (what is a bag of air?). I think back to my childhood since I was born during the war which had rationing in it and after it. I thought that was normal, I was too young to understand. Lunch boxes for schoolkids had not been invented as far as I know. We got a third of a bottle of milk in the mornings. The school didn't have a kitchen and when they invented school dinners we had to be bussed to a school that did.

    It is possible that if I had the riches of Timmy and had a lunch box then I might have been mugged for it, or was mugging invented by then?

    Anyway I enjoy being a boring old frat and saying things like, "We didn't have that in my day".

    Run away and play Timmy and don't bother your elders again.

    I have had my humorous post and I would now like to say something else. I would not like to think that Timmy would suffer healthwise from a mother who is a nut. If he is in any danger from not being able to share his lunch he should be removed immediately to a place where good food abounds. The local authority is his only option unfortunately. Sorry Timmy, nice to have known you.
