An Australian mother has created a unique ‘pantry list’ for her family during the coronavirus pandemic to stop them eating all of the snacks, and it has brought cheer to the internet.
The woman, who has chosen to remain anonymous, pasted the list inside her cupboard at home mapping out exactly how the food was meant to be used.
‘New pantry rules for Coronavirusgedden,’ her list began.
‘Nobody goes into the pantry for food or snacks without asking first. No willy nilly pantry visits allowed.’

This was followed by a command that no new cereal boxes be opened if there is already one in use. All boxes must be eaten and ‘gone’ before a new one is started.
‘You better have eaten a piece of fruit, a vegetable or yoghurt before you reach for anything in here,’ she continued.
And finally, if anyone thinks about touching her Cadbury eggs they are going to ‘wish they got coronavirus’.
The lighthearted take on what has become a global health crisis is a reminder of the ordinary families dealing with the infectious disease, and how they’re keeping calm amongst the panic.
‘I wish my kids read this before I had six boxes of cereal opened,’ one mother commented on Facebook.

‘I might need to make one of these for the eating machines that live in my house,’ said another.
A third person added: ‘These are pretty much my rules anyway with or without the virus around’.
The Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison advised against all overseas travel on Wednesday as the country battles the coronavirus outbreak.
He also banned large non-essential gatherings, shortened aged care visits and put 20,000 student nurses to work.
But, on the advice of doctors, he stopped short of closing schools and initiating a full-scale lockdown as seen in France, Spain and Italy.
