double standard on junk food

How many of these moms who bash what other people feed their kids and say their children never eat any junk or processed food; feed their kid formula because they didn't want to breastfeed.
As in choice, not medical or tried and didn't succeed.
This isn't a bash post but just a random thought.

I parent my kids how I see fit. So far they're turning out fine. I don't really take anything I see on Cm seriously.

No formula, no fast food, VERY little junk food. We eat pretty clean.

No formula, no processed food(too many allergies to buy it), as for fast food we sometimes get fries at Culvers as a treat but nothing else due to allergies.

I am more concerned about how my kids turn out as people, than what I feed them.

You do what you want with your kid. My junk food eating, formula by choice babies are perfectly healthy teenagers now who are on the skinny side of average for their height & weight. They're all athletic, smart kids.


So stuff that in your pipe and smoke it.

I BFed and gave my DD plenty of junk food up until recently.

She also consistently eats 10-12 age-appropriate servings of produce a day, and has since she started eating solids in earnest.

This. It was actually having my first son and working so hard to breastfeed him that made me become so healthy. No WAY was I ruining all that hard work lol
