A mum has defended feeding her eight-month-old toddler ‘huge’ Sunday roasts.
Lauren Young is one of many parents who is trying out the ‘baby-led weaning’ technique that allows a child to feed themselves. However, she’s being called out by her followers for ‘taking it too far’.
In one clip, the TikToker can be serving up her daughter a Sunday dinner, which appears to include chicken, carrots, peas, cauliflower and roast potatoes.
She captioned the post: “Can you ever eat too many veggies?!”
The clip has since been viewed nearly 600,000 times and over in the comments, hundreds of people have moaned that the portion size is ‘unnecessary’.
One parent said: “That’s way too much food.”
Another simply added: “Unnecessary.”
“I wouldn’t even want to eat that much,” a third chimed in.

However, the majority of parents stood by Young and argued that it’s better to serve too much than too little.
One commented: “Britain’s best-fed baby.”
Pitching in, a second said: “If it was too much food she wouldn’t eat it. Do we carry on eating when we’re full?”
“They literally tell you to make more because baby-led weaning is messy and the majority falls on the floor,” another added.
Replying to the comments, the mum said: “Yes! It looks a lot but it’s really not. She gets bored of eating if she doesn’t have variety.”
To another follower, she added that baby-led weaning definitely helps with a toddler learning ‘appetite control’.
