AIBU to think I won't bother helping out next time?

A friend of mine was ill,not seriously so,but enough to make her feel terrible,so yesterday I had her twins overnight,to give her a break,and said I'd take them to school for her.

This morning before taking them to school,I gave them breakfast. Neither wanted the cereal I had,so I made banana pancakes for them,admittedly because I had a craving for them,though I almost never eat breakfast. They had the pancakes with cashew but butter,yogurt and fruit,and ate the lot.

I then took them to school,collected some items from Boots,and dropped them off to my friend. She asked what they'd had for breakfast,and I told her. She was not happy that I'd given them 'sweet foods' for breakfast,instead of their usual Rice Krispies or Cornflakes. She went on about spoiling them,and said next time make sure that they just have cereal. She didn't even say thank you.

AIBU to think that there won't be a next time with that attitude? Or am I just being a grumpy sod?

YADNBU- what an ungrateful cow after you did such a lovely thing?

Btw- are those pancakes American style 'fat' ones or thin crepey ones? They look utterly delicious.

I wouldn't imagine there is a lot of difference in sweetness content between Rice Krispies and pancakes, to be honest, so I can't see what she's objecting to.

Either way, she should have thanked you for your help regardless of what you fed them for breakfast so you are not being grumpy or unreasonable.
