Is this the best they could do? Really?

Oh, we're done with all that vegetable-steaming and mess, our children are cutlery-wielding, spaghetti-chomping angels... at least some of the time.

Is this the best they could do? Really?

For the record, Froglet loves her nursery and, consequently, so do I. They are lovely people who provide Froglet with lots of fun. The snacks aren't what I'd provide but they're ok.

Today Froglet has come home with an Easter lolly. I thought I'd share the information from the back of the wrapper with you...

Ingredients: sugar, glucose syrup, water, thickener: pectin, corn starch, citric acid, acidity regulator: sodium citrate, beef gelatine, malic acid, flavouring, colours (E104, E110, E122, E129, E133, E171). Please note E104, E110, E122 and E129 may have an adverse effect in activity and attention in children.

:scream

Seriously?? This was a best Easter treat they could do?

Will be putting it in the bin (once I've let OH read the back)!

Even more bizarre, it appears to be a pink jelly rabbit emerging from a flurescent yellow egg...

Someone needs a science lesson me thinks!

Hahaha... There really is something slightly troubling about that image!

Surely chocolate would have done the job better, if an edible treat was necessary at all!

Well OH took one look at the ingredients and said... "I'm totally eating that by the way!"

Is the E number labelling new? I noticed it when I was buying icing pens recently & ended up buying white!
