Food shaming? Has anyone had this experience?

Posted by   + Show Post

I was food shamed at a birthday party yesterday. The mom I was sitting with is "dairy free, gluten free, no sugar, or processed foods" for her kids. While I don't judge or don't care what she feeds her kids. She proceeded to try to make me feel bad because there was nothing at the party I told my kids they couldn't eat -  sprite, chips, hot dogs, cake, ice cream, fruit and dip ect.

I was told that I am not teaching my kids good eating habits, when I got the opportunity to sit some where else I did. 

I don't judge because of the way she feeds her kids, but she was Very judgmental on the way I feed mine. 

I don't understand trying to make someone else feel bad because you disagree with whatever choices that they make. I think we are all trying to do the best we can.

Yeah.  If we want milk we are limited- soymilk is roughly $3/ half gal, almond milk is at least $3-3.50, coconut is nearly $4/ half gal.  I don't drink milk of any type more than a few times a month so that the girls can have the milk they want- my younger child has to drink almond milk because she is sensitive to dairy and soy. I think when they get into elementary school we will limit milk to cereal, and focus on getting all their nutrients more from their food.

yeah but its high everywhere. its one of the charge whatever we want products lol. .


Quoting preacherskid:

Only soymilk, and only with doctor's approval.  Soymilk is easily twice the cost of cow's milk, and I live in a low cost of living/low grocery cost area.

i only have one who power drinks milk a gallon or two a week by himself. other than using it for cooking with it and the occasional bowl of cereal for me when he and if he outgrows this phase I can probably buy milk in a quart container. b

I've never had this happen and try not to say anything to others. What people decide to feed their kids is truly none of my business.
