    ZOMG, a carrot??!!!111!!!!1!! I can't believe some mums feed their kids carrots when they could be eating atherosclerosis-inducing french-fries and frozen sweetened fat aka ice cream!1!1! And then to utilise the free wi-fi for the purpose it was provided - outrageous!

    Funny thread is funny.

    The most bizarre thing is that several children were sharing one, unpeeled carrot. I'd peel it and cut it up for my kids. That's the thing I don't get. Carrot sticks are yum, but I don't know if I'd eat an unpeeled carrot so I wouldn't expect my kids to.

    I wonder if people thought I was cruel when my dd had a small chips, and then ate a bannana, but only saw her eat the bananna.

    Oh but awhile ago on here, I was being blasted for feeding my dd maccas at all, saying I was making her obese and yet if I went to maccas and gave her a carrot, I'd get judged for that too. Can't bloody win.

    When we go to maccs my girls only eat the chips they dont like anything else. But when you say people that you are taking your kids to maccas they say they will get fat well there is a playground there that they love to play in and keeps them happy for about a hour. and i dont put out

    I eat unpeeled carrots. And my only concern with siblings sharing a carrot is the inevitable fighting and bickering..."you had more than meeeeeeee! "

    Yeah that!
    If you peel a carrot, (or a spud) you may as well chuck it away! Most of the nutrition has gone into the waste...

    I must be fussy. Unpeeled carrots taste like compost to me. I love potatoes with skin (not raw), but not carrots. Sorry though, I think I'm derailing this thread with my vegetable preferences!

    Not everyone can afford to feed there kids junk food while out and about.

    Oh but I would have at least taken 2 carrots



    I never saw anyone with carrots, but I used to have coffee with a friend and her very active boy at Maccas a few years ago when he was 3. He has CF so needs the high fat high salt food...but there were always other mums or dads and kids there having sangas or saltanas etc while their parent had a coffee.
    It's great.... free play area for the kids while the parents get to chat and have coffee. Wow now they have free wifi too.. When my boy is a bit bigger (save me chasing him off the high stuff) I'll be packing my carrots and meeting friends there too

    a happy meal (healthy seared snack wrap, juice and apple pieces) is 4.25, thats a pretty cheap meal, i cant feed my family for under 5 bux each... she sure could afford to get her self an expensive coffee?!?!

    imo taking a child to a fast food resturaunt and making them eat a horse carrot is slack.
    I think it's VERY VERY clever

    Maybe she scored the laptop in the breakup. Now near pennyless, she can only afford a coffee per day while her kids have "horse carrots", and free play time, (maybe they even LIVE at Maccas) whilst she searches the net for a new man

    (I LOVE making up stories about complete strangers)

    I agree.. YOU CAN"T WIN ON BH

    hmm except as a kid I liked onions and apparently was always stealing them out of the vege rack... (Strange I know)

    This really is a hilarious thread

    THANKS FOR THAT

    Maybe the mum felt really guilty sitting in McDonalds, like she felt she had to appear that she actually feeds her kids healthy food

    Really weird
