Hey, I’m not a parent, I’m 18 but I can tell you what my mother did. What you have to do is inform the teacher how important your child’s diet is. Do not by any means leave the teacher in the dark. If your child will only drink formula from a bottle, then I guess just give him a bottle to have during snack time at school. Once again just stress to the teacer how important it is. I never had any problems with a temper at school (besides the normal 4 year old mentality) except when kids made fun of me (more a problem in later years i.e 3rd grade- 6th grade). If you have any more questions please ask!
Sincerely, nMeaghan
