A mum has come under fire for posting a picture of a snack she made for her son.
Denise Fisher, 44, from the US, came across a fun foodie idea on Pinterest to dip snacks in Jell-O mix.
She decided to try it with her four-year-old son Jase to keep him entertained in lockdown and it went down a treat.
She posted a cute snap of her son tucking into the jelly-covered marshmallows and grapes to The Best Kids Crafts & Activities Facebook group, explaining the method she used.
But not everyone was impressed as Jase.
The idea is incredibly easy to follow as Denise explains that all you have to do is dip your snacks in water – don’t dry them – and roll them around in the jelly powder.
You could also store the snacks in a container and pop them in the fridge for at least an hour, then tuck in – it’ll taste just like sweets.
Although Jase approved the tasty snacks, it divided parents opinions reported The Sun.
Whilst some said it was a smart and fun way to encourage children to eat fruit, others disapproved of the dyes in the Jell-O mix.
She said: “I did get some negative feedback about the dyes in the Jell-O Mix however it didn’t really phase me what the other moms were saying.”
In the comment section Denise told other users that ‘judging isn’t cool’ and to ‘just keep scrolling’ if it wasn’t something they would want to do.
Denise responded to the criticism by saying that her son was absolutely fine, and together they had lots of fun making and eating them.
She explained that this wasn’t something that she did regularly, and instead that it was a fun treat.
The mother said: “I would never put my son in any type of harm and mothers shouldn’t judge other mothers.
“We are all trying to do our best and all I want to do is make fun memories for my son!”
A few parents were quick to agree with Denise that the snack was a great idea in moderation.
With one saying they were going to try it with their child, and suggested dipping a variety of vegetables in the mix too.
