    I would have just replied "Go eff yourself old man," but that's just me...

    Hmm. Maybe I need to work on my inter personal relations a little...

    My DD is 22 months but has always looked about 6 months younger then her age (she's tiny and has very little hair!) I used to be extremely strict about what she eats, I still haven't let her have chocolate or juice but since she was about 1 I would give her 1 or 2 hot chips when I had them. Until she was about 14 months she refused to swallow finger food and would just suck and spit it out. One day in a food court I gave her 2 hot chips and she was sucking on them when some old woman told me that it was wrong that a child who shouldn't even be on food is being given greasy food like that. I am shocking with confrontations so just went bright red but my mum who was with me said 'excuse me my daughter is pretty much exclusively breastfeeding that child and all she normally let's her eat is fruit and vegetables! She is 1 for gods sake she is allowed a chip!' and that put the nosey cow in her place lol. If it was just me I probably would have reacted the same way you did. Unless its a 2 month old being given a bottle of coke people should really mind their own business.

    He would love to see me out shopping, I do a big shop every 2 weeks and the only way i can keep DD from running off on me is if I give her a shortbread man in the trolley. It is not even remotely a healthy snack but she loves them and only gets one once a fortnight. If anyone ever said anything to me i would tell them to mind there own business. Don't feel like you have to justify yourself she could have been eating alot worse.

    I regularly get DD a snack from the bakery to munch on while we're doing the groceries, they're right next door to each other, I can't see too much wrong with it. Geez, you could do alot worse than a cheese and bacon roll!

    Don't you hate how you've never got a snappy comeback for these people!! It can be really hurtful when people judge you and make comments like that. They don't know what your child regularly eats at home.

    I'm still bitter about an incident years ago when I got blasted from a lady in the pet shop for leaving my dogs in the car. I had the car parked right in front of the shop door, windows down, raced in to swap the size of a collar. She yelled at me in the shop for it, but didn't bother to ask why I'd done it. If she had I could have explained that my poor 11 year old dog had a neurological condition where he couldn't control his muscles properly and getting in and out of a car was very difficult for him. I felt it was better for him to be left in the car for one minute while I swapped the collar than drag him in and out. Off topic I know but I get so annoyed how people think it's fair to comment and judge without knowing the full story.

    WTF?

    I thought the sodium and fat would be an issue before the sugar ??

    Weird random stranger...wish I'd had a snappy come back...but all i said was "oh really ok."

    Annoyed at myself .

    EEEKKKK!!!..... i take my DD 14mths out for chips and gravy probably on a fortnightly basis (after she has had her own propper lunch) she has a few of my chips with gravy....i wonder what the old fart would say to me!

    Some people think they have the right to stick their 2 cents in onther people business.

    in my opinion its irrelevant if the child should be having the food or not- umm MYOFB!!!! I am a mum. I do the best I can. Unless I ask for your advise.. I DONT WANT IT! lol. My ds was tiny when born due to IURG. I am quite tall and of a large build (good German stock lol) and people used to look at me when he was a newbie like WTF.. then when ds got bigger (he is big strong toddler now) i got the "Oh he is in a well fed paddock" and i can't believe the old biddies who dared ask me if i breastfed. My next time with a newborn I will be telling people to STFU LOL.
