However, the toddler returned from school with empty flasks, with no traces of food or snacks left behind.

The mother expressed her delight at her son's increasing appetite, stating that he had started eating well since attending school.

The post quickly went viral, with many commenters speculating that the school's teachers must be eating the food.

However, the mother quickly clarified that her son had developed a healthy appetite since starting school and that the teachers were not responsible for finishing his lunch.

In her words:

"What my 2 year old toddler went to school with inside his lunch box and how he came back with it. He started eating well since he entered that school and I am happy with it."

In a chat with a teacher, Angela Chisa, she told that sometimes, the food enters into the wastebin to avoid complaints.

However, other times, the child might enjoy eating when watching his/her peers eat in class.

In her words:

"Honestly, you can't really please these mothers. They know what their child is capable of eating and they still give the child excess. When the child returns with food, they come back to school to complain to management about neglect. Sometimes minders in school throw the remnant away to avoid complaints. I'm not saying everyone does this though but some parents are just insatiable.
"Most children also tend to eat better when they see their mates eating rather than when they are being forced at home."
