Mom Shamed After Sharing $1 Dinner She Makes for Her Kids

Share on Facebook

A mom was cruelly shamed for sharing her money-savvy meal with fellow Facebook users, and hundreds came to her defence…

The love between you and your child is something unlike any other feeling on earth… It’s a pretty magical thing.

Being a mom is basically the hardest job on earth – and the pressure to be a perfect parent can make life even more stressful.

There are some aspects of motherhood are just eternally frustrating. Hey, no one said being a mom was always going to be great fun, right?

But there’s one thing pretty much every mom out there can relate to, which is feeling like you’re not giving your kids the best.

Everyone is having to be pretty savvy with their money.

And financially more than ever.

Things get a lot more stressful.

So surely the fact that children being fed is the most important thing.

For not being “nutritionally balanced.”  

Ensuring that their children are fed throughout the pandemic.  

After she shared her bargain £1 ($1.30) meal idea to Facebook

On to the “Feeding a Family on £1 a day” Facebook page.

Who struggle to get their kids to eat vegetables.

“Kids tea they don’t always need veg to be healthy portions for a 14 and 8-year-old.”  

One said: “All I see is carb overload.” Another said: “Children don’t need veg every sitting but that’s not a healthy balanced meal.” Another said meals like this one were the reason people need educating on nutrition.

“It’s comfort food it isn’t healthy, potato is a root vegetable that does not count as one of the five. There is nothing wrong with it but it isn’t a healthy dinner. Two out of three items on the plate are processed food (if mash is homemade if Smash then 3/3). “It’s facts and it just shows how much food/nutrition education is still needed in UK.”

And many rushed to the mom’s aid.  

One person said: “Surely with all that’s happened this year with Covid and job losses the main point is the children are being fed. “Why do people care what other parents are feeding their children, it has absolutely no impact on your life or day whatsoever.” Another said: “Full tummies is all that matters. Not everyone can afford to have balanced meals every single time. Sometimes people just need to fill up their little peoples tummies. Be kind.”

“Honestly some of the judgemental people on here need to give their heads a wobble!! Two children have received a hot meal and will go to bed with full tummies!! I see nothing wrong in that.”  

I’m sure we’ve all had plenty of meals like this growing up. For more parenting news, keep scrolling to see why Kelly Clarkson has been mom-shamed.
