It’s our family tradition- surf n turf platter to celebrate! Both my kids prefer steak over sweets so this is how we do it💃🏼 #fitfam #birthday #healthyliving #crunchymom #cleaningredients #protein #healthyfamily #momlife #momsoftiktok
In the two clips, the children can be seen gnawing at the large steak bone, after apparently stripping it clean of meat.
Alongside the video of her son, Dani explained that he had “requested ‘moo’ and ‘fish’ for his bday.”
Replying to @Babygirl id rather celebrate her bday with something she LOVES and something that is nutritious to fuel her body. Not going to spend money on nasty food dyes lined to cancer.
“It's because most birthday cakes and cookies are filled with nasty artificial dyes, most of which are banned in Europe, but still very widely used in the US, and it's a known cancer link,” she said.
“It's known to cause behaviour and learning issues, known to have adverse effects on attention, irritability, hypersensitivity, all that. So it's like, why would I pay a lot of money to give that to my daughter on her birthday? Especially because she's only one year old.”
Dani then claimed that she “did reach out to several local companies” and “asked about their ingredients,” but said she was “shocked" at both the contents and cost.
“They're way more expensive than you would think they are,” she said of the cakes and cookies on offer. “And it's like they're using the most nasty, cheap ingredients with those food dyes.
“Why in the world would you pay all that money to give your child something that could potentially harm them?”
She then acknowledged that she could make her own cakes but admitted: “I'm not really into that”.
Still, she went on: “If my daughter ever asks for a cake, of course I would make her own healthy cake, and I know I could do that.
“But at one year old, she's not asking for cake,” she continued, adding that the little girl would “rather” have steak.
“She absolutely loves it,” Dani insisted. “So until she asks me for cake, I don't see any problem in continuing our amazing family tradition where she's enjoying it, the whole family's enjoying it, everyone's happy and everyone's staying healthy.”
