A MUM has hit back at people who slammed her for including ham in her kid’s packed lunchbox.
Mom often shares her pre-schooler’s lunch box on her Tiktok account, makenzie_ethome, and the video has been viewed more than a million times.
Makenzie, who used to work in the Marine Corps, now a stay-at-home mother of two, said she wanted to address the “stupid remarks” left under her video.
The comment read: “Please stop normalizing processed meat for kids’ lunches!”
As she addresses the comment, she gives her daughter a ham and cheese wrap for her lunchbox.
In the caption, Mackenzie writes: “Good old ham sandwich.”
In the video, the mother said: “I am only going to address this once and for all.
“Unless specifically asked, my videos are not an open discussion for your parenting advice.
“I share what I want with you guys and when I need help I ask.
“It goes to every other parent on this app, we know what we’re doing, sometimes.
“Just because we share our lives with you on this app, doesn’t mean you can sit behind your keyboard and give us unsolicited advice.
“Like I wouldn’t take it personally,
“I do what’s best for my family, if that’s not what’s best for your family it’s okay.
“Don’t say anything unless you see my kids hurt physically or emotionally.
“It’s not your place, on that note, I hope you enjoy watching this toxic Cancer get together to make lunch for my daughter.
“see you later.”
Thousands of people commented on the video, and viewers were divided on whether Mackenzie should feed processed meat to his child.
One user wrote: “Processed meat is a literal carcinogen but okay.”
A carcinogen describes an agent that can cause cancer in humans.
Another user commented: “It’s not a shame. It’s just kind of a concern I’m concerned about with many others about the processed chemicals everyone is eating. Why get defensive? “
Other users said that Mackenzie should expect comments if she’s putting the video on the Internet, one wrote; “If you put this on the internet you’re open to criticism. Plus, meat isn’t healthy to begin with, processed meat is even worse.”
Other users came to Mackenzie’s defense, and even Mackenzie replied sarcastically to some users, saying it was unhealthy that she was “trying to poison her family.”
One user’s comment reached 11k likes and added: “People who are under so much pressure for processed meats. Like, are they cutting up their own meat? Lunch is so balanced for your little lady!”
Another user replied: “How rude! My kids love deli meats and I don’t care what other people think It’s not like they only eat this!”
