Mum slammed after posting a photo of a McDonald’s, KFC, pizza and fizzy drink feast for her young daughter’s 7th birthday.

The mother-of-two, from Ratana on New Zealand’s North Island, was warned she would ‘give children diabetes’ after she posted in the Heil’s Kitchen group, which promotes healthy home cooking as an alternative to takeaway food.

‘My girl’s 7th birthday party. Kentucky chicken, cheeseburgers, Thai food, pizza,’ she captioned the post written in Maori.

The picture has 20 cheeseburgers, 20 soft drink cans, 10 pizzas, six KFC buckets, six coleslaws, five potato and gravies and three Thai stir fry containers with chocolates and sweets scattered through.


People were quick to slam the mother for the fast food feast, with one man calling it a ‘diabetes birthday’.

‘Happy birthday, we got you a heart attack,’ another man said.

‘That’s something I would expect for a boys 16th not a girls 7th birthday party,’ a woman said.

‘New Zealand has a massive obesity problem and this is not helping. No seven year old needs food like this,’ another woman said.

‘This is not a healthy diet.’

I must admit when I read the headline I expected it to be a teenagers birthday. It is a bit much for a 7 year old. But everything in moderation!

  • Not my kind of party, but if the birthday girl was happy with it, maybe she even asked, why not?


  • Who is to say that they don’t uaually eat healthy and that this was a celebration and a big treat for her birthday? We need to just mind our own business.


  • I wouldn’t be impressed if this was served at a party my children went to. I would hope they had real food on offer too.


  • If takeaway food is so bad for you and then it should just be banned from the country. It’s a kid’s birthday do we really need to worry about a possible or one off for a whole bunch of people that would make it so easier for the parents and a bit of fun for the kids. Agreed it’s not the healthiest but who cares it’s a birthday party.


  • It’s a lot of junk food, but many people have junk food on birthday parties.


  • I suspect this was a big deal for the child because they don’t normally eat like that. If it’s a one off birthday party I don’t see a problem with it.


  • Maybe this her daughter’s favourite food to enjoy!


  • It depends on how many kids and adults are there too. Each to their own!
