A mom in London is ticked after her daughter’s nursery didn’t allow her daughter to eat a chicken sandwich because it wasn’t halal. Check it out…
A mother claims staff at a nursery refused to let her daughter eat a chicken sandwich – because it wasn’t halal.
Yasmin Jackson, 24, claims staff at Kingswood Daycare Nursery in Mitcham, south London, ‘starved’ her five-year-old daughter Amari over concerns about the meat in her packed lunch.
And police are now investigating possible race and religious offences against the nursery after an online campaign surrounding the incident.
She took Amari to the first day of a summer play scheme at the nursery with a packed lunch on Monday, as instructed by Merton Council.
But when she collected Amari in the afternoon, she found her child hadn’t been allowed to eat the chicken salad sandwich, houmous, carrots and a chocolate bar in her lunch box.
Ms Jackson, a single mother and former nursery worker, said: ‘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?”
‘I went to speak to the manager and I said “why wasn’t my daughter allowed her lunch” and she said “we didn’t know it was healthy”.
‘And she said “the form was wrong, you weren’t meant to send a lunch as it is provided here. We gave her a small portion of spaghetti pasta and an apple”.
‘And she said we didn’t know if it’s halal.
