A mum has been inundated with backlash after packing an ‘inappropriate’ lunch for her daughter in kindergarten.

Mum-of-one Jane, from New South Wales, Australia, was pleased with the Squid Game-inspired lunchbox she prepared, but hundreds of other parents weren’t impressed.

Sharing an image to a popular Facebook group, Jane packed rice balls wrapped in yaki nori seaweed which were decorated with triangles, circles and squares represented in the show.

The fictional survival drama television series Squid Game sees contestants battle to the death in attempt to win a huge amount of prize money.

While some deemed it to be ‘wrong’ to include references to the gruelling show in a child’s lunchbox, others said it’s ‘just shapes on food’.

Do you think the lunchbox is ‘inappropriate’ for children?

‘I doubt this mother has actually let the child watch the show, it’s just some shapes on some food, lighten up people,’ one woman wrote in the comments of the Facebook post.

‘If you didn’t say squid games, I would have assumed it was PlayStation-themed,’ another added.

But a third said: ‘My assumption is that if she’s making the theme for the kid, she’s let the kid watch it. Why bother making a themed lunch box that they won’t understand?’

The lunchbox was also filled with fresh sliced strawberries, M&Ms, miniature sausages and soy crisps.

Other parents disregarded the Squid Game references and dubbed the lunchbox as ‘healthy’ and praised Jane for her efforts. 

‘Looks yummy well done mumma bear, keep up the lunches,’ one woman wrote.

‘So cool!’ another said.
