Mum of five Katie Price has come under fire from fans after posting a picture of her youngest daughter Bunny, one, on Instagram.
The sweet family snap might have looked harmless from the first glance but fans were quick to spark a huge debate over the drink Bunny had been given in the photo.
The toddler can be seen to be drinking what looks like a fruit juice drink. Followers were quick to accuse Katie Price, 37, of ‘rotting her teeth’. One user, thehorseyadorer, commented saying, ‘If that is juice…in a baby bottle @officialkatieprice…you will rot her teeth #basic’ while another, supercooper68 said: ‘Please tell me that is not juice in a bottle! Really?!’
It wasn’t long before others retaliated in defence of Katie, saying her parenting style was ultimately her decision. ‘Here we go..the parent police are out. What she does or chooses to do with her child, has got nothing to do with anyone else,’ one mother wrote, adding, ‘My son drank juice out of a bottle and yes it was sugar free. So what?’
Katie, who captioned the sweet picture ‘my little beaut’ posted a response to those who were criticising her by assuring them that after five children she knew what she was doing. Katie wrote under her original photo: ‘My kids are very happy and healthy and I’m sure I know what I’m doing after having 5 kids’
She then added: ‘Thank you for people sticking up for me.’

Following the debate, a rep for Katie told the Mirror: ‘All of Katie’s children lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Occasionally the children are allowed a treat and the image captured one of those moments. I’m sure most mothers can relate to this!’
