    I try not to judge...

    But in saying that, I don't like seeing kids with juice in their bottles or having chips and nuggets for dinner every night of the week!

    I don't understand.... The point of this thread.

    It's not as if there aren't thousands of parenting choices that people do differently every day and I am sure we don't "understand" (which is often another way of saying don't agree with) lots of them.

    I can't feed that stuff to my kids either, so I'm totally with you on this Onion. Very occasionally they have a sorbet from Wendy's, and they have had McDonald's chips twice in their lives (invited to birthday parties). They have a 'treat' once a day which is usually home cooked and a small serving. They eat lots of veg & fruit and very little processed stuff.

    I'll admit to total double standards in my own diet though. If I was half as strict with myself as I am with them, I'd be slim as a reed

    I get what your saying.... But honestly you don't need to understand it! As long as you are doing what you feel is best for your family then thats the main thing. Maybe they are uneducated, maybe they just feel comfortable with it, maybe it's all they will eat... Who knows? If you feel so strongly about it why don't you use it in a positive way and help raise awareness about healthy eating?

    It's easy when they are babies, they don't pester you for maccas and chocolate We believe in being moderate, good food most of the time, junk sometimes. IMO being hard core only makes it taboo.

    AS to why people do it? uneducated about healthy eating, repeating the mistakes of their parents and it's all they know, giving in to pestering, lack of money for healthy foods (it's much cheaper to live on junk than good meat, fruit and veg). Maybe some laziness.

    Well, let me tell you about dd. She is 23 months and loves coca cola but she only loves holding the can (she's not fussed on the taste and won't really touch it). She just wants to 'belong ' when the older kids get coke, Fanta, juice, whatever. I know she doesn't drink it (she hates the fizziness) so I let her have the can. She also wants but dislikes ice cream but again I let her have it. Why? Because she is proud as punch holding an ice cream that she's not going to eat and she just wants to be like the other kids. I couldn't give a **** what anyone else thinks

    I understand what you're saying. When I see people giving babies chips, chocolate, cheesecake, coffee (these are people that I know)), I scratch my head. My DD has never had anything unhealthy. She'll have her first sweet food at her birthday party next week. I do think that if they've never tried it they don't know what they're missing.

    Now, before people jump on me too, I don't care what people feed their kids (although I admit I would judge them poorly if that was all they eat all day every day. But how would I know that?) It is my choice to keep my baby junk-food free until she's a bit older. She'll have her fair share later I think.

    As as a kid, I was extremely fussy. At restaurants all I'd ever eat was a bowl of chips. People probably judged my parents, but at home we never had junk in the house. I turned out just fine! Everything in moderation

    Totally OT, a PP mentioned it, but what is a babycino? Is it just frothed milk?

    Yeah, with a little bit of chocolate powder on the top.

    We eat a bit of junk food. Both dd's even had MacDonald's chips before they were 1. These I said it. It's cheap, easy and convenient when out and about. At home though it's a different story, they have unlimited access to any fruit or vegetables they want to snack on during the day. We eat reasonably well and healthy. What you see in public even those you know well isn't always how it is in normal day to day life. on they other hand it will often come down to education. We don't do juice very often, we do cordial instead as it dilutes better and both girls associate cordial with being watered down. A lot of other people would give their kids juice thinking they were doing the right thing and giving the healthy choice because you know they could be giving soft drink to them instead.

    I know of several people who believe since potatoes are a vegetable they qualify as a healthy option. So hot chips must be healthy. I know someone else who cooked up 2 minutes noodles, added some frozen vegetables and a can of flavoured tuna, viola healthy as they reckon.

    I really believe it comes down to lack of education and/or convenience and sanity savers.
