Today was a crazy day and when i went to pick DD (21 mo) from FDC i realised i have no easy food in the house for dinner and nthing defrosted.
DH is away in Singapore all week and we are running low on supplies, too much hassle to take a 7 mo DS and 21 mo DD to Coles - so i thought mmmm McDonalds maybe. DD has never had it before and amazingly got very excited when we pulled into the drive thru....1 cheeseburger happy meal (no drink) later im feeling embarassed i gave her a Happy Meal but wonder do people give in and give a Maccas every now and again?
Incidentally she is only eating vehemite cheese and ham sambos lately so i was double surprised she devoured the Happy Meal!
NO NEGATIVE judgement please, I know Maccas is bad!
Have you or do you ever allow McDonalds?

I give my DD the occasional happy meal. She loves it and knows its a treat and eats really well the rest of the time so I don't see the big deal

Oops just noticed the other thread. Will take my answer there.

Yep! Dd has definitely had a happy meal. I don't see the problem if it's all in moderation!

I'm the same, I give it as a treat but I make sure she has lots of healthy stuff as well. I believe if they're allowed to have it from an early age then they're less likely to get addicted to it at an older age when they can get it themselves. I've seen this happen, no junk food of any kind while they were kids & then as soon as they got jobs & a licence they were getting it every day. I think this is heaps worse than an occasional treat.

I have too given in to the maccas now and again. Thank goodness my little dd and ds don't really like it. Don't feel bad you are only human.

My son is 19 months old and sometimes we go out and share a meal I'm a bit bad for treating him, I felt proud that he hasn't had any maccas in a couple of weeks but that's probably only cuz we haven't been out much
