The teacher also told NewsCorp that she could always spot the lunchboxes of children who were overweight, because they were filled with Tiny Teddies and muffins from Coles and Woolies.

‘And I know parents are busy. I’m not saying I never sent my children with packaged food, but the ones who consistently have packaged food are the ones that you know, they don’t always make the good choices. ‘

Ms Tobin says she only allows her children to drink soft drinks when they compete in cross-country running events.

She only drinks them herself on election day, because she ‘needs the sugar’. 

‘I do think that people’s doctors should definitely be saying to them, I’m sorry. You need to cut down on things. It’s that simple.’
