A mom’s anonymous Facebook post about brownies she made for a school bake sale has caused controversy online because of an ingredient substitution she made. She claims that when she didn’t have the milk the recipe called for, she just used her breast milk instead. And people of the Internet aren’t having it.
“I didn’t have time to run to the store,” the baking mom admits. “And didn’t think it was a big deal (some of those kids could use the nutrition to be honest.)”
Well, when other parents found out her brownies had breast milk in them, they were upset and she didn’t see what the big deal was. So commenters online set her straight.
- “Secretly feeding children that aren’t yours baked goods with your bodily fluids in them is gross, shady and borderline psychotic,” one person wrote.
- “I’m ashamed just reading that,” another wrote. “She should have made kale and coconut oil smoothies if she truly cared about their nutrition.”
- “Let us spare a moment of silence for the children of Booby Crocker” another witty commenter added.
But all that aside, pediatrician Wendy Swanson points out that “We know that HIV can be transmitted through breast milk, and there’s a very small possibility that hepatitis can be passed along if a woman has cracked nipples.”
So please, keep your breast milk for your own kids and shake it down to the store when you need to get milk to bake anything for anyone else. Thanks in advance from everyone in the world.
