Cunningham, frustrated that her Facebook feed had been "flooded" with posts about "what not to feed your kids," described what her own kids ate that day: some nutritious stuff, and some McDonald's Happy Meal lunches.
She compared the all-natural, home-cooked versus fast food debate to breast-feeding versus formula—what really matters is what works best for the family, and it's all about moderation. "At the end of the day fed children are best. Don't let them eat junk all the time, but don't lay the guilt on yourself or any other parent if they ate 2 minute noodles and Nutella today."
She edited her "rant" after it started to go viral, adding that the "mom-shaming" she was talking about isn't only about meals and nutrition, it includes vaccination debates, co-sleeping, and so on. She also pointed out that she referred to it as "mom-shaming" because she hasn't noticed the shaming extending to dads. She added that she has no problem with "educational posts," just with posts with a judgmental "tone" to them. She ends by saying that moms "should be supporting other moms, not vilifying them." And she's right—it's better to leave that to non-moms and teenagers.
