It’s safe to say that Kristin Cavallari is not impressed with the comments on one of her recent Instagram photos.
To celebrate Independence Day earlier this month, The Hills star, 29, shared a snap of her husband Jay Cutler with their sons Camden, three, and two-year-old Jaxon.
The image had been taken on a beach, and saw the children heading into the sea with their snorkels. Aw.
Kristin – who’s also mum to eight-month-old daughter Saylor – had captioned the shot: ‘Even though we’re not in the states, were still celebrating. Hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th! #MyGuys [sic].’
So far so innocent, right? But almost immediately, she was inundated with messages about the boys’ physiques.
One follower wrote: ‘I understand you live a very strict dietary lifestyle but these children are very obviously nutritionally deficient.’
Others said: ‘Seeing pictures of your boys and how they look is a bit shocking to see!’ and: ‘I know you cook healthy but to see the bones just doesn’t seem normal, sorry!’
Hmm. Kristin wasn’t going to stand for this criticism, so she hit back with one very sarcastic reply.
She quipped on the post: ‘Yep, I starve my children. Just blocked the most people I’ve ever blocked in my entire life. Happy 4th hahaha.’
Since then, the pretty blonde – who’s previously said she’s ‘become a psycho about reading every single ingredient label and researching the ingredients I don’t recognise’ – has received plenty of support.
One fan reassured her: ‘My son looks exactly the same and eats just fine! Some kids don’t gain weight like others do. I’ve never heard one ounce of concern from my sons Doctor. You’re doing a great job! Don’t let the internet trolls tell you otherwise [sic].’
Another responded: ‘You have a beautiful family! People are quick to forget that children are very active and they can also be very finicky eaters.’
