I will say it loud and proud. I give my son Maccas, sometimes he gets it 2 weeks in a row. some times it's once a month. Sometimes he doesn't have it for 4-5 months. He loves chips and big Mac sauce.(so do I) he gets a happy meal sometimes other times it's just the chips.
It's convenient, it's a treat, and it doesn't make me a bad parent. sometimes I just CBF cooking.
A lady in Maccas once said how bad it was for my son. And I laughed because she was buying a meal for her self and had 2 kids with her and not sharing. Wtf
Edit: I also have no issue with the parents who don't give it to their children, your children your choice

And sometimes I even eat it myself. Though now that we've moved 'into' town..... we don't drive past it any more like we did when we lived 'out of' town... (gee that 5kms makes a difference!) So we haven't bought it in ages because I CBF getting them all in the car and driving 5mins up the road..... These days I tend to stop and pick up a hot chook and some oven chips from Woolies.
Or give them good old instant noodles.

yes, they get it occasionally.
We have maccas/hungry jacks etc at least once a week. Lately it's been 2 or 3 times a week though but as of this week it's back to one night.
Yep. When I've got a double cheese burger craving the kids come along. If I want fast food without them I wait til kindy/school day and that's because it'll be cheaper lol. I don't feed them junk three times a day because it's expensive and would be gross, and can't imagine their behaviour.
So we do it as we see fit and don't really care for the lady who waved her finger at us when we were there for breakfast one morning. Unfortunately my immature DH had a sudden finger spasm of his own and that made the lady embarrassed.
Yep I have a maccas about once a week, so does DD.
DH and I have take away once a week, DS might have it once a month or chip here and there.
I have no problem with him having take away etc sometimes. I am a prime example of what deprivation can do (I am overweight and put some of that down to junk food being locked away at times when I was a child so once I could buy my own I gorged on it)
