Firstly, please let us apologise. At Ella’s Kitchen we would never intentionally be disparaging towards breast milk or breast feeding and we absolutely support all parents, however they choose to feed their little ones.
The comment you are referring to was taken out of context by the Daily Mail and we can understand how it may have caused offence. We were trying to make the point that referring to natural sugars contained in fruit as ‘teaspoons’ is misleading and as a point of clarification we suggested that, using the same argument, the natural sugars contained in breastmilk would amount to 2 ‘teaspoons’ – which we also see as a flawed comparison.
We weren’t making a comparison to the types of sugar in fruit to that found in breastmilk rather that referring to either of these natural sugars in terms of ‘teaspoons’ is misleading.
We will be careful in the future to avoid such comparisons as again we would never want to in any way discourage mums from breast feeding their little ones if that is what they choose to do.
