  • This is revolting, how is this child going to learn to chew. Masticating is good for growing kids and by her chewing the food most of the nutrients will go into her mouth not his.

  • "acceptable" for what. It's her kid, she's having some harmless fun. Some folk mash their kids food in a bowl first. I'm sure our ancestors were doing it this way routinely for babies when we lived in the bush.

    Lets not get all hoity in the name of sensationalist reporting. It drops the standard of journalism.

  • All the nutrition would have been swallowed by the mother and a mashed up nothing fed to the child
