    Sometimes. My kids are fussy eaters though and will only eat the nuggets (my DD refuses to eat the fries because she says they're 'too squishy' ). We prefer to get Subway for takeaway instead, because there's a better chance the kids will actually eat that.

    I do. Not that we get it often anyway!

    I was absolutely craving a cheeseburger a few weeks ago...thought I'd be cool and get maccas for dinner....for THREE days straight I was met with complaints They wanted home cooked dinners..I eventually got it, but jeeze, you'd think I was trying to poison them

    We have it as a treat and if it's just that a treat I don't see any problem - if it's a staple for dinner 3-4 times a week then it's an issue but what you describe is totally normal!

    My kids eat subway, pizza, maccas, HJs, KFC, fish and chips etc but none of these things are regular meals - all treats!

    Shock horror though my kids have the soft drink most times not water - every now and then they have choc milk but meh if they having the burger and fries the lemonade isn't that big a deal!

    Yep... We try to encourage the healthy choices though as it Is a treat they're allowed what they like however

    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.
    Do people really have the nerve to do this?? I've never come across some stranger telling me what I should or shouldn't do with DD... I have a VERY quick temper, I just don't know what I would do if someone had the hide to wag their finger at me!!! Good on your husband and his spasms

    Yep, occasionally we do, but only if I don't want anything to eat. I can't eat that crap. My kids would prefer to call in at a Vietnamese noodle shop for a bowl of pho and some spring rolls rather than maccas though.

    People really do. Countless times we've encountered rude strangers who feel they are free to comment on anything and everything someone else does.

    In keeping with the topic, DD1 must have been about 5months old the first time someone at Maccas said something to me, "I hope you aren't feeding that little baby this junk!" I wasn't, the kid was barely able to eat apple puree I wasn't about to shove a quarter pounder in her mouth.

    I think common sense with fast food, well any food really, is what THE PARENT needs and anyone else can politely b*gger off.
