    I take DD to maccas so i can have a coffee and she can play (i dont have an iphone otherwise i would use the free wifi while there as well ), most of my friends dont have kids, so instead of going to gloria jeans or coffee club we got to mccafe so DD will leave us in peace to talk, and she loves the playground and playing with other kids as opposed to sitting in a coffee shop!!

    but i still usually end up getting her nuggets or something tho, but i have been known to take healthy food there in my bag for her
    (its a combination of wanting her to eat healthy/being a tight@**** )

    all in all its a very cheap way for her to play and me to relax, i dont care what anyone says

    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.

    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"



    Oh wow, I needed that laugh badly. LOL Thanks OP.

    i dont find this cruel at all.
    infact, its a great idea to implement in the future.
    coffee for me,free internet and playtime for the kid.
    i think its more cruel to actually feed your child the maccas :P
    also, who knows, maybe she bought him an icecream afterwards. but either way, giving her child a carrot instead of junk actually seems like good parenting to me.

    I thought I'd throw in that I dont mind eating raw, unpeeled carrots if I'm in a snacky mood and need to stop eating crraaaapppp.

    Also, whats with Maccas?!?! Maccas has managed to brain wash my son before he'd ever eating Maccas (I blame the ads on telly, they must have gotten to him)

    On a crazy hot day we were driving my mum to the airport, and we have water, but we just didn't think it through, it was over 40 and we didn't have air con and bubba was freaking out, so we decided to go into a maccas to cool him down, he'd be screaming hysterically for about 20 minutes, and as the golden arches came into site he stopped crying IMMEDIATELY and was perfectly calm and happy and then had an absolute ball in Maccas. All he got was another bottle of water (cos his water was warm from the car trip) and he LOVED it.

    EVil Maccas.... brain washing my baby... somehow....?

    A horse carrot? My DD has unpeeled carrots (as do I) are they classified as horse carrots? lol

    I am going to Macca's now but will not be taking any carrots for DD. A milkshake & some cookies will surfice (as a treat) while I catch up with my friend for a coffee. But I will enjoy some free wi fi

    Best punishment ever!! I'm going to do this!

    I do the same thing basically. I go to use the playground (as it is fenced) and take sandwiches and carrots for the kids to eat before we go home.

    They don't even realise it's a restaurant and run straight to the playground. Never shown any interest in the food whatsoever. (Although I have to pick up and chuck in the bin any apple poptops, etc that people have left in the playground or the kids will go for them).

    My kids *love love love* carrot by the way.

    I feel sorry for kids that have giant amounts of fat and salt jammed into their bodies
