Does anyone else get Annoyed when you have a play date and the other parent is all like, " my child has to be gluten free because I don't want my child exposed to something that might hurt her" or "I don't allow my child to have red dye #27" OR "I don't think schools should allow candy or pizza in school because it's bad for children" 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 End rant

I just tell them that they need to provide food for their lo then because even tho I think they're nuts I won't be responsible for giving their kid something that they aren't supposed to have. As for the school thing I'd tell them to pack their kid's lunch then it's not their problem

I'm that mom. 🙈👏😬 don't see how it's annoying though. Lol. occasionally like ounce a year I'll allow boxed food, Capri suns, etc. usually at gatherings (parties). other than that nope.

JVP there are different ways of going about it I think. If you just say it one time then it's fine but if you demean the other parent because they are allowing their kids to have those kinds of food I can see where it would be annoying.

Well, we don't have that problem haha! If they really are allergic that's one thing. Parents just take somethings over board.

Me too, JVP. My son is not eating crap, sorry. They have all their lives to eat junk, I'm going to put good foods into his body for as long as I'm able to do so. I don't do this at people's houses, though.

As long as they bring snacks for their child then I don't see the problem. I don't think it's annoying if a mom doesn't allow certain things so long as she provides an alternative for the child. You never know if their child could have allergies to certain things.

That stuff is bad for you but I eat it so my child will eat it probably

I have to agree with the school thing. But everything else is silly.

Pizza covers all the food groups lol! I'm all for everything in moderation. If a parent has all of those restrictions on their kid, then I would just ask them to bring their own food. As a parent, if I had those restrictions I wouldn't even mention it unless it came up and would just bring my own food. My nephew can't have red dye or it makes him absolutely crazy (he's autistic) so I would cater to that one or an allergy

I think that it can be annoying if they are implying you're not doing the right thing if you aren't also doing what they are. But if it's just them sharing, I think it may be silly but not annoying. But then we also avoid some of those things as much as possible. Also, I don't agree with the school thing. I think the school should only serve healthy options but whatever I send with my kid to school (short of peanut butter or other high-allergy foods) is my choice, not the schools.

I just get annoyed that someone would come to my house and tell me all this every time. She knows that my family eats like 90% of Americans. If she really has a problem with me feeding my kids peanut butter or pizza then she should bring her own food and stop telling me I'm harming my children
