Amy Duggar slammed for ‘appalling’ dinner for son Dax, 3, and encouraging toddler to have ‘nasty’ table manners

Amy Duggar slammed for ‘appalling’ dinner for son Dax, 3, and encouraging toddler to have ‘nasty’ table manners

FANS have slammed Amy Duggar’s cooking skills over the dinner meal she made for her three-year-old son Dax.

The Counting On alum put together a dinosaur-themed meal for her toddler.

In the Instagram photo, Amy, 36, placed the prehistoric animal toys around the pile of mashed potatoes with broccoli and dino egg-shaped nuggets.

The former TLC star captioned the post: “I encouraged my toddler to play with his food! 

“And that it was ok to have dessert first, before a chicken nugget.”

She also ditched the plates and allowed her infant to sit on the table instead of his chair.

Amy hoped the meal would inspire Dax to “be creative and to stomp on the table like a dinosaur!”


In an online thread, critics slammed the reality star for her meal and for allowing her son to misbehave at the dinner table.

One critic blasted: “I find this absolutely appalling. Why can’t she just teach her kid to have table manners?”

Another critic added: “Now that her kid has reached an age where she should be teaching and modeling good behavior, she has been spoiling him with constant toys and letting him get away with everything.”

A third critic said: “I agree that all this is a bit much. I definitely would not be encouraging my kid to sit at the table. And the stomping thing is bananas.”

A fourth person wrote: “My four-year-old would love this! But feet definitely do not go on the table!”

A commentator chimed in: “The only part I have a problem with is teaching your toddler it is okay to put your feet in your food. 

“I know babies put their feet and everything else into their mouths anyway, but still. That’s nasty.”


This is not the first time fans have slammed Amy for her parenting skulls.

At the end of March, Dax offered to help his mother in the kitchen.

In the short video, the little one appeared to be holding a large white serrated knife.

He seemed to be cutting large pieces of a cantaloupe on top of a green cutting board.

Amy wrote: “Home for lunch, and the little man loves cutting.

“These knives are kid-safe, but shhh, don’t tell Daxy that!”

In the background, she continued to remind her child – who she shares with her husband Dillion King – to be careful while slicing the melon. 

Viewers argued the TV personality was putting her son in a potentially dangerous situation, even though she was using a child-friendly knife from the Curious Chef brand.
