My 8mo has chewed on a McDonalds chicken nugget before now (possibly even a chip).
You need to get an idea of what child abuse is and how off the mark you are.
You also need to get an idea of the principles of nutrition and how bad foods are bad for you and how much a baby

Me and DH have a very healthy diet 99% of the time, with the odd burger or pizza occasionally on the way back from a sporting event. If DS is weaning and swipes a chicken nugget, I really can’t see that I’ll get worked up about it when he’ll be on kale and quinoa the rest of the time 😂

At eight months my daughter was sucking on their pancakes while me and dh were sucking on coffee like mothers milk.
Have you forgotten how bone breakingly hard it is to be a parent at that age? Even if she thinks a chicken nugget is a good nutritional choice or she has not a clue (you can argue both), its the parents look out and not even in the hemisphere of abuse*
*disclaimer: unless five month old is actually a tub of lard

Would a chicken nugget cooked at home be as bad?
This reminds me when someone (it’s too cliché to say who they are to me) insisted it was healthier to give my toddler homemade wedges over oven chips. Even when I read aloud the ingredients of the oven chips (potatoes and sunflower oil) ....

I was mad when my dm took ds to McDonald’s when he was 3. But not cause it was abusing. This is a woman who bought organic local meat to give to me to feed to him. I was annoyed because I didn’t want him moaning for it, he’s 8 now and I have bigger battles.
Would you be posting if they had been in a restaurant and he was gumming pate? Which absolutely didn’t happen with ds either.

I'm not professionally offended.
A chicken nugget is NOT abuse!!
It's a poor parenting and food choice.
If you wrote that a 5.5month old had a lit fag put in its mouth, or was in a poorly ventilated room with both parents smoking weed or if alcohol was put in its milk, then that's a different matter altogether.
