‘So unhealthy and controlling’: Kourtney Kardashian slammed for projecting damaging relationship with food onto her kids
that of LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Reality TV star, Kourtney Kardashian is a mother to 12-year-old Mason, 10-year-old Penelope, and 7-year-old Reign, all of whom she shares with her ex Scott Disick. And when it comes to health, wellness and nutrition Kourtney is different from her sisters. Although the sisters are dedicated to healthy eating, nobody has gone as far a Kourtney has.
And in the latest interview with Wall Street Journal ahead of the launch of her new range of vitamins and supplements, Kourtney proudly said that her eldest son Mason says that the people who let him eat junk are "bad." She also admitted to refusing to take him to McDonald’s when asked, even though it had been a year since he’d last eaten there. This has set quite a controversy against Kourtney projecting unhealthy and obssessive relationship with food onto her kids.
Kourtney follows a vegan diet and is meat-free. Over the years, she has experimented with everything from keto to intermediate fasting. She also went public about her decision to eliminate gluten, dairy, and sugar from her and her children's diets.
Incidents like that of at Kim's oldest child North's birthday party where Kourtney didn't want there to be any "junk" food at the event, and the infamous moment where Kourtney sniffs a donut that she refuses to eat but says "I can't eat this, but how exciting is it to smell it?" — Kourtney's extreme dietary choices are well known to her fans, but the new interview has sparked backlash after she spoke about her children's food habits which left viewers concerned that she is projecting an unhealthy relationship with food onto her three children.
She admitted in the intereview that she refuses to take Mason to McDonald’s when asked, even though it had been a year since he’d last eaten there.“Today I was having my one-on-one time with my son and he said, ‘Mom, I need McDonald’s French fries today, please. It’s been a year since I’ve had it.’ I was like, ‘Today’s not the day, sorry," she said.
Becoming a mother is what triggered Kourtney’s diet, “When I had Mason is when I really started my wellness journey, he’s very smart. He’ll tell me, ‘A person was bad because they let me have Cheetos.’” Kourtney recalled.
Fans took it to Reddit in reaction to her interview:
"There’s healthy, and there’s obsessive. This is obsessive and a very unhealthy way of thinking to pass on to your kids. It’s about moderation. Jeez," a frustrated fan wrote. "This is so unhealthy and controlling. These poor kids are going to have such an unhealthy relationship with food and their bodies,” one person wrote. "This is so unhealthy and controlling. These poor kids are going to have such an unhealthy relationship with food and their bodies,” wrote one Redditor. “Kourtney has to be careful she doesn’t make her kids foster a bad relationship with food,” wrote another concerned fan.
Some even spoke about their personal experience as they reflected on their parents doing similar things and forcing similar rules when they were growing up, which made a severe impact on their lives as adults.
