I was in the supermarket. I had purchased a cheese and bacon roll for my kids to share. DS 4 two thirds and DD 9 months one third. DD 9 mths was sitting up in the trolley happily munching on her peice when I saw a man shaking his head at me. I said "Its ok she's nearly 10 mths people think she's younger cause she is so small." He said "but those things are a big sugar hit, not good for her age."
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 .

I'm always so surprised reading these threads that compete strangers would comment on the food you give your kids.
I would just tell someone to worry about themselves or have their own kids.
A cheese and bacon roll isn't going to kill them.

I would have thought the same as you but at any rate, dont worry about him. As long as your DD doesn't have them every day, a little bit of any of it won't hurt her. She was sitting quietly, happy as Larry and at least eating something. Maybe he was having a bad day himself and had a case of the grumps.

some people need to mind there own business. if they have to complain about a cheese and bacon roll they have no life !

Grrr how rude!! Its a small piece of bread with a bit of cheese and bacon!! Not like she was guzzling a bottle of coke!!
Dont worry about it, he was being a pr!ck. As long as your baby eats a healthy, balanced diet and is happy and healthy...the odd 1/3 of a cheese and bacon roll is nothing and will do no harm.
Id probably just tell him i was quite happy with my kids diet thanks and walk away. Rude man!!

Meh. It would have a fair bit of salt and I was a bit anal with the kids at that age... but I also believe in moderation. As long as your 9mo has healthy food 90% of the time, a few bites of an egg and bacon roll isn't going to hurt her.
I think under 12 months before their gut matures, it's important they don't have too much junk but then seeing your posts here for ages you seem like a sensible loving mum. It was only a few bites. Ignore the turd lol

Yep I have received a bit of "advice" from strangers. I'm quite sure your capable of making the best decision for YOUR child. I've learnt never to judge others without knowing their situation.
