Watch this, parents. Please watch this. And when you're done, tell me that I'm not the only one who watched it and alternated between snorting and swearing at it.

I'm sorry, which planet are we on again? I am supposed to throw away my children's food and feed them who-knows-what-the-hell's-in-this powder???

Whatever happened to "That's your dinner, son. You eat it or you skip dessert"?

Whatever happened to "Your chicken and vegetables will be in the fridge for the rest of the night, little lady. If you get hungry before you go to bed, go eat it."?

Whatever happened to setting expectations and sticking to our guns as parents?

Well, I guess we don't have to anymore. We have powder in a can. I can sneak this into my son's chocolate milk or his energiser drink and say "I'm a good parent".



  1. What the hell?? I'm putting that in the same basket as sanitising their hands every 5 minutes... LOOPY!

  2. How about regularly sitting down with our children and eating meals together at a table. We could even have a conversation and turn off all screens for the duration.

    1. Revolutionary!! And sadly, many will opt out of that because the kids might complain. And we can't have our kids complaining can we? :)
