So why not get 2 bottles?
I'm not made of money.
Go to McDonald's and stick your cock under the ketchup dispenser. Or buy a 99p fries and ask for eleventy hundred TK sachets.

Problem solved smile

I give a st. I hate ketchup with a passion. Almost as much as I hate being called a .

I take a couple of hours to prepare and cook decent food using proper ingredients, choosing the only two vegetables he likes and he smothers it with ketchup. I might as well just give him some cardboard if all he will do is smother it in ketchup. He eats utter st most of the time, at least he gets a proper family meal once a week. And starts to learn table manners.

And do not ever use that word in relation to me again. You wouldn't to my face, so please don't on the Internet.
Quite. What's with all the parents bhing when someone is actually doing some 'parenting'.

Eat properly and make sure your kids grow up understanding the difference between good food and bad. All the NHS needs is another generation of over weight chubbers with heart problems.

I found a cook book titled 'meals in under 20min' and it is fantastic. Just takes a bit of effort

Letting him put ketchup on some meat doesn't sound like "bad parenting". Equally forbidding him from putting ketchup on anything isn't "good parenting".

As others have said, everything in proportion. And ketchup is better than most food dressings.

Personally I think that poster came across as being less concerned about any nutritional problems caused by a bit of ketchup on the childs dinner, and more motivated by some kind of weird "I've spent hours cooking this and you want to put ketchup on it".

Each to their own but that's just how it came across to me and it seems a little strange IMO.

I would like to educate my child (not a parent yet) in the way to dress food so that it compliments. Children won't always 'try' new things unless 'helped' as their taste buds aren't so mature, and they don't know anything unless you as a parent help to educate them. Would i want my child pouring ketchup on everything? No. I don't care if they like it or not. They need to be taught that in moderation it is fine, but it is not healthy to pour sugar over everything you eat. Will my child thank me later in life when they appreciate proper food? Yes because i also thank my dad for doing the same to me.

I take the kids to McD's maybe once a month. They eat it, enjoy the meal out, and aren't fat.

We are normal people.

you'll get no kudos around her for being normal.

My kids get mcdonalds maybe twice a month, my 12 month old can do in a happy meal in abouit 5 minutes. i like mcdonalds, i financed my way through university working at mcdonalds, i've worked in much more expensive kitchens and hotels where i wouldn't eat if it was free.

I'm middles class, professional and have been known to cook a lobster bisque on occasion.

Never let them put that salt on your chips though, that stuff is far worse than the general calorie count and they put a lot on.

I took my kids there for tea last night. I will no doubt post later about how the child protection officers have taken my kids away as I'm an unfit parent.

(Was really nice and kids ate the lot!)

Yea, I was having this dilemma this weekend. I went to a wedding on Saturday night, completely ruined myself with generous application of whiskey and felt predictably stty on Sunday. Having been out for a walk with nipper, on the way back we drive past McDs and the OH asks wether I fancy it. Normally, in that state, it's a yes without question, however I must say I felt uneasy about taking our little boy in at 11 months.

Never the less, we went in and ordered some food. We went there, and Kozy Jnr just happened to come with us. Predictably, he kicks up a fuss as we start eating and he's not happy with his carrot crisps, so we get him some nuggets.

At this point, I am aware of a couple of other patrons giving us 'that look'. Maybe the OP was one of them.

But, as I'm stripping the coating off the nuggets so he can eat the chicken inside I think about what we're doing. We're giving him some plain chicken to eat. In a clean environment. My partner is a social worker and deals with real child abuse, we're talking about malnourished, neglected, beaten and raped children. Sometimes dead ones.

Is feeding my boy some chicken 'abuse'? Dear fking god people, get a grip.

I think the OP is talking about "daily" or certainly very often, lazy parents, taking their children to McD, without considering their health - and I've seen many very fat children in McD's.

In your example where you take off the breadcrumbs and feed your child a bit of chicken I think we can agree it hardly fits in with the OP's original point.

So don't worry, you aren't a child abuser - so you can get down from that high horse.

Quite.
Or you could choose one of the all you can eat places, like Taybarns. Some families are like a gaggle of hot air balloons rolling about the place.
