Mom Doesn't Pack Halal Lunch For Daughter, Child Pays The Price

It’s pretty safe to say that lunchtime at nursery schools across the globe usually go off without too much of a hitch. According to the Standard, lunchtime at the Kingswood Day Care Nursery in the UK has turned into a full-blown controversy.

Yasmin Jackson’s five-year-old daughter was a student at the school. She packed her daughter lunch one day, but would find her child was a bit famished at the end of the day.

“When I picked her up at the end of the day the first thing she said to me was, ‘Mummy I’m really hungry, can I have my lunch now?” Yasmin explains.

She inquired with the school’s manager to find out what the problem was.

“She then said ‘There was a sandwich in there and we didn’t know what it was. We didn’t know if it was halal,” said Yasmin.

The school uses a private contractor to provide their meals, but there doesn’t appear to be any mention of specific requirements for packed lunches. Halal refers to foods that are permissible under Islamic Shari’ah law.

The matter escalated to the point that the school had to call in Scotland Yard after being inundated with online threats and racially abusive statements. A source at the school has denied Yasmin’s claims.

“This is all complete rubbish. We do not only allow halal meat to be eaten. It is not true and it has all been blown out of proportion with people spreading lies,” the source said.
