I thought I had replied to this. Anyhoo...
DS is 5 and has never had Maccas. He doesn't even know what it is because I don't eat there and never take him. I'm happy to give him the occasional treat, but we go to cafés rather than fast food outlets, just my personal preference.

i think it is good to teach children that all food is okay in moderation, rather than banning foods.
we have take away every few months and it's a special occasion. but it could be thai, curry or maccas (actually we usually do hungry jacks as i think it tastes better!)
i think making things off limits only make them want them more. and i don't want to be a complete meanie

Treats aren't off limits for DS, but I've been selective about which ones he has. I don't eat at fast food outlets so my kids certainly won't be. But if others choose to, well, it's none of my business so no judgement from me.

Yep my boys have Maccas every now and then, happy meals with fries, nuggets and water.

We have take away way to offten lately. I have actually put a ban on it for 2 weeks. Im not ashamed of it or anything but I felt like a sh!t parent coz it was like 3 times a week. Mainly coz my depression is really up and down and its hard to cook. Im slapping myself out of it for now.
