Teen Mom Jenelle Evans mocked for urging kids to 'eat vegetables' after feeding them white bread & gravy for breakfast
TEEN Mom Jenelle Evans was mocked by critics for urging her kids to eat more hearty greens after feeding them white bread & gravy for breakfast.
Jenelle, 29, has been scrutinized over her own eating habits after claiming to have adopted a healthier diet.
The reality star posted a TikTok video begging her children to "eat their vegetables."
In the clip, the TV star held up two onions at the camera before placing them down on a plate and breaking out into a dance.
She captioned the clip: "talking to my kids like…"
The video made it's way onto Reddit, where users poked fun at the "hilarious" request.
One person wrote: "I’ve literally never seen a vegetable on any plate on the land ever."
Another commented: "Oh wow jenelle spinning with an onion, score!"
A third user pointed out her previous breakfast selection for her children of biscuits and gravy replying: "Is gravy a vegetable?"
BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS
Back in March, the TV personality was slammed by fans for whipping up bacon, sausages, white bread and gravy for her two youngest children.
In a clip she shared to TikTok, Jenelle filmed herself frying up bacon while Kaiser, six, took a Zoom class for school and Ensley, four, watched cartoons.
She told fans: "I cook the kids some breakfast – biscuits with gravy and bacon."
The MTV alum showed Ensley tucking into a large plate for her breakfast and joked: "And they eat five times before this, I'd just like to point out."
Jenelle filmed Kaiser eating the same meal before giving a smile and a nod to the camera, commenting: "Oh… I got Kaiser's approval."
Critics branded the reality star as a "horrible mother" and accused her of consistently feeding her kids "unhealthy" meals.
"Put a piece of fruit on their plate. My gosh. I swear food is the only comfort those kids get. At least make it a little healthy," one wrote on Reddit.
"She needs to feed her kids healthier meals. This is all I have seen them eat besides a roast Jenelle made once," another added.
"She is a horrible mother and a terrible person. Imagine raising multiple children to believe the world eats white bread and gravy for breakfast every day," a third posted.
The TV star has also been bashed for her own poor eating choices lately after indulging in burgers and tater tots during a family outing with her husband David Eason and their kids.
At one point in the video, the married couple cheered with their burger buns and leaned in for a kiss,
The children are in the background as they were eating their lunch.
The couple made fun of their belly fat by patting their full stomachs as they continued to chow down.
Jenelle then focused the camera on the three kids, who were sitting on the ground while consuming their burgers and snacks.
The greasy meal came after the MTV mom credited her recent weight loss due to her "healthier" food choices.
She had excluded fast food, bread, and soda from her diet.
While sharing three photos of herself wearing a white leopard bikini, Jenelle wrote alongside the snaps: "Eating healthier lately! Cut out a lot of fast food, soda, and bread.
"I haven’t been trying, but I am losing weight without working out! Feeling great lately.
"Focusing more on my mental health and body has been more than amazing and very rewarding in my opinion."
BACK ON TRACK
She may have gotten back on track with her diet according to an Instagram Story where posed for a pic with her avocado breakfast.
The Teen Mom 2 star smiled at the camera as she showed off her almost empty bowl of avocados.
She had dipped "squeezed lemon" over the pieces of the large berry.
The reality star added a dash of "sea salt" and sprinkled in some "peppercorn."
Jenelle captioned the snapshot: "Still keeping up with eating healthy."
