The other day me and DP went to Maccas and he was very unimpressed by all the flies buzzing around and rubbish on the tables and he happened to comment on how there was even a half eaten carrot on the table behind me.
I thought he was mucking around but sure enough there was a huge half eaten, unpeeled horse carrot on this table, women on the next table was having a latte and using the free WiFi,
Anywho, a few momments later I turned and some kids were at the table eating this carrot, massive unpeeled horse carrot, and it was there mother who was enjoying her latte, using the free WiFi while making her kids eat a carrot in the middle of maccas.
Im all for eating healthy but it made me sad thinking about these kids eating a carrot while everyone else enjoys their greezy maccas, It would be torture for a kid to sit there watching everyone else enjoy there happy meals and all they have is a carrot.
At one point I heard the kids ask if they could play on the playground and the mum said "not until you have finished all your carrot"
I dont mind carrots, Id happily give my DD peeled carrot sticks in her lunch box. But this situation seemed cruel to me?
Im curious to what everyone else thinks?
