This mum admits to using breastmilk in the brownies as she didn’t have time to get to the shop…
An anonymous mum has taken to Facebook to share her disbelief after coming under fire for selling breastmilk brownies at the school bake sale. After other mums found out about the unconventional ingredient, the mum says she was hit with a wave of criticism despite her insistence that it made absolutely no difference.
The mum said she wasn’t sure how to handle the situation. “I need some advice,” she wrote. “I made brownies for my school bake sale that had breastmilk in them. I didn’t have time to run to the store and didn’t think it was a big deal (some of those kids could use the nutrition, lets be honest). One of the mums found out and is blowing it way out of proportion. Idk what to do!” While the mums call for advice seemed to fall on deaf ears, that didn’t stop over 200 comments flooding in within half an hour…
Just Not Ok
Responses to the post were divided, with most disgusted by the mums lack of consideration. “Honestly this is actually near a criminal offence!” wrote one shocked commenter. “Secretly feeding children that aren’t yours baked goods with your bodily fluids in them is gross, shady and borderline psychotic.” It seems parents were right to be concerned, with the US Food and Drug administration saying that unscreened breastmilk can pose serious health risks, including exposure to infectious diseases.
We think that whatever you choose to do when it comes to feeding your own kids is one thing, but using breastmilk in a bake sale contribution is completely unacceptable. Who knows what else is hiding inside those cookies and cakes!?
