A vegan mum has been left fuming after discovering her ex-husband fed their daughter chicken nuggets from McDonald’s.

Turning to Reddit for some advice, the woman penned: “I wasn’t aware our hitherto vegan daughter was now eating meat and I feel like that’s a decision that I should have been informed about.

“I called him after she went to bed and he told me I was being uptight and he didn’t tell me because he knew I’d overreact, ‘I’m controlling and I don’t need to be privy to every single thing he does when our daughter is with him’.

“Also, from a dude who gave me a hard time for craving Oreos (which are f***ing vegan) while pregnant with her.”

The mum explained that she was angry with her ex-partner as she believes he should have selected a meat-free alternative on the menu.

Plus, the incident has led to her daughter demanding more chicken nuggets. 

She added: “She has a full-blown meltdown demanding chicken nuggets. We get home and she’s, like, blowing snot bubbles she’s so enraged.

“She howls her way through a bowl of leftover soup. She hates me, I’m a terrible mum, dad would have let her eat chicken nuggets. She wore herself out crying.”

Since opening up about what has happened, the vegan mum has received tons of support from other parents. 

“It’s not okay to shut down communication just because you’re worried that the other parent is going to be upset with you,” one person wrote. “The guy is 100 per cent the a**hole for putting his daughter in the position of hiding something from her mother.”

Another added: “You don’t give them fast-food just because they beg for it. And if you and your co-parent have agreed to a diet together, you absolutely should let the other person know when you change something.”
