Tori Spelling Receives Backlash After Posting Innocent Photo Of Her Daughters On Instagram!
Tori Spelling found herself in the firing line recently after sharing what she thought was an innocent photo of her two daughters on Instagram.
The pic showed ten year old Stella and seven year old Hattie enjoying a treat together in what looks to be a sponsored ad for Little Bites Muffins.
“This mom of 5 finds snack time a balancing act between pleasing my kiddos and feeling good as a parent about what I’m feeding them,” Spelling captioned the photo of her children.
“Thank you @littlebitessnacks for being yummy and kiddo approved. … This mama bear is grateful that #lovelittlebites has no high fructose or corn syrup and is made with real ingredients like strawberries, blueberries, and bananas.”

This mom of 5 finds snack time a balancing act between pleasing my kiddos and feeling good as a parent about what I’m feeding them. #ad Thank you @littlebitessnacks for being yummy and kiddo approved ( my littles ❤️ the Chocolate Chip Muffins, Blueberry Muffins, and Strawberry Yogurt Muffins) while this mama bear is grateful that #lovelittlebites has no high fructose or corn syrup and is made with real ingredients like strawberries, blueberries, and bananas. PS- They are easy and mess free for little hands and great on the go! What is your kiddos fave flavor? #momwin
Spelling went on to add that the muffins are “easy and mess free for little hands and great on the go!”
The mummy police came out in full force attacking the Beverly Hills 90210 actress for promoting such a high fat product for kids.
“Empty calories with no nutritional value,” one commenter wrote, while another said, “This is HEALTHY for your kids?! Um no.”
“The first ingredient is sugar!! Artificial flavours. soybean oil is not healthy it’s a vegetable oil. Pretty sure these are not a healthy snack,” another noted.
While yes, it’s true that muffins are nothing more than mini cakes, who are we to judge what Spelling feeds her kids. No doubt this was a paid advertisement she has entered into with the snack company, but even if it wasn’t, let’s not forget they’re ‘her kids so her rules.’
The 45 year old mum of five also had plenty of support from parents who found her post totally relatable. “Yumm! I’ve never seen the strawberry muffins. You’re kids are beautiful,” one supporter wrote. “Sorry people feel the need to click on a post when they only have something negative to say!”
Another agreed and added, “I can’t get over how many people are being so cruel to her and her children!! If you don’t think these are healthy or something that you want to serve your family that’s fine but insulting the children is not OK!!”
This isn’t the first time Spelling has been attacked online about her kids. Whether it’s comments about their weight or appearance, this mum says it’s “not easy” to turn a blind eye, especially when her kids are involved.
“I have dealt with it forever, but when they say things about your kids, you’re just like … ‘What?’ she said in an interview to US Weekly. “Everyone is so anti-bullying these days, but it feels like lately with celebrities, that doesn’t apply. You can say whatever you want about celebrities and their kids, their family, but you can’t say it anywhere else in any other profession.”
