‘Does this seem suitable?’: Outraged mother in quarantine hotel shares photos of what her 18-month-old son was offered for lunch – including two plain pieces of white toast, potato chips AND French fries
- A young mum in hotel quarantine has blasted her conditions at the Quest hotel
- She said chips, instant noodles, French fries, and toast were served to baby son
- After being stuck in Prague for four months she says she is ‘mentally struggling’
A young mum has criticised her quarantine hotel after staff served two-minute noodles, french fries, a packet of chips and plain white toast to her 18-month-old son for lunch.
Barbora O’Grady was visiting her sick mother in the Czech Republic when she got stuck in Prague with baby Oliver due to coronavirus border closures.
The dual citizen told Daily Mail Australia she hasn’t seen her husband in over four months and that her harrowing experience in mandatory self isolation has left her ‘struggling mentally’.
Ms O’Grady said she can cope with the ‘appalling’ food which is included in the $3000 quarantine bill, but feels ‘it’s criminal’ to give it to Oliver.

‘My son got instant noodles for lunch today! Does that seem suitable? He’s 18 months old! Who gives that to a one and a half year old toddler?’ She said.
‘And with lunch they always give packets of crisps, even for the child. It’s so gross.’
She said the pair haven’t eaten any of the food provided to them so far, apart from a yoghurt and crackers.
Ms O’Grady said a small salad is also provided but it’s not ‘substantial’.
When she asked for more appropriate food, she claims nothing was done.
‘There’s not much to look forward to when you are in quarantine,’ she said.
‘You are held between four walls and it’s tough. When bad food full of carbs arrives, it’s like the last straw… when I saw today’s lunch, I burst into tears.’

There is an option to purchase food of the hotel from Uber Eats, but Ms O’Grady says it’s going to be too expensive to order it everyday.
Ms O’Grady lives on the Central Coast and was scheduled to land in Sydney on a repatriation flight, but the plane was diverted to Brisbane.
