Shopping centre. Tuesday afternoon. Warrington. Millies Cookies. Mother and (I think) her parents are with a child in a pushchair. Child aged six months approx.

They buy cookies, then give a whole one the size of the baby's head to the baby. Baby not overly impressed I have to say. Granny even remarked 'oh, don't you like it'?

Agggghhhhh!!!! I managed to resist stomping over but then wondered if I was then complicit in this.

10mins later I saw baby with just a stump of biscuit in her tiny hand. I just hope she had thrown the rest somewhere.

Perhaps it is just that I am a tad sensitive to sugar and salt etc issues. Our 11mth old has only had sugar and salt in bread. Have to confess I can't be bothered to make sugar-free bread but not so much as a Petit Filous has passed his lips. His first sugar rush will be his first birthday cake.

Really, they don't need it. Not even in stewed fruit.

Live and let live... Maybe. :-/

TheSmallPrint, you beat me to it.

Mind your own beeswax OP.

what is it with smug mothers on here today?

Yes OP you are complicit in the crime of a baby being given a biscuit.

You should definitely stomp over next time. Those silly people may not be aware that babies don't need sugar and will be eternally grateful to you

You said it yourself, live and let live.

FromEsme Tue 27-Nov-12 18:59:37

Jins you can imagine them, can't you, falling to their knees in gratitude?

Look on the bright side. The baby probably didn't have any teeth to spoil.

They gave it a biscuit not a line of coke, lighten up.

Why are you do against sugar?

What is it with all the wind up artists on here of late? hmm

akaemmafrost Tue 27-Nov-12 19:04:12

Next time why don't you say something to the parent then report back their response here? Now that WOULD be interesting to read.

Best way to encourage children to be sugar addicts when they are older. Be really strict and don't allow them any sugar.

YANBU in WANTING to stop the biscuit incident but not your place sadly. Perhaps a bit of pureed carrot or apple might have been a better choice at six months! Maybe I worry too much, but sugar aside, I'd be worried about bubs choking on the biscuit!

My DC all loved malted milk at that age.
