Mum-of-two Sarah, from Australia was praised by other parents on social media, after she filled her son's lunchbox up with rice sticks, a sandwich and a pear.
Sarah explained her little one is a fussy eater and prefers more bland foods.
"Yes, I would love to offer my child a smorgasbord of healthy goodies, but I have a fussy eater who prefers simple boring lunches, I pick my battles," said Sarah.

One person wrote: "My son will only have a Vegemite sandwich. There is nothing wrong with simple."
While another said: "I try to keep [school lunches] simple too, I do two fruit, one vegetable and a sandwich."
And a third added: "I have one child that will try anything and another with a texture aversion and likes 'predictable' lunches."
"That is a healthier lunch than you are giving yourself credit for," added a fourth.
