Katie Price hits back at critics who accuse her of ‘using her kids for profit’ in ‘shameful’ video

Kate Price has hit back at her critics after sparking yet another parenting row.

Over the weekend the former glamour model shared a video of Princess and Junior talking about how much they loved their Hey Like Wow drinks.

Alongside the post, Katie also pointed out where you can buy the drinks from and how much they cost.

Naturally, the video didn’t sit well with everyone, with some of her followers speculating that it could be a sponsored post and accusing her of using her kids ‘for profit’.

“Beautiful kids but this is a bit of a step too far!” one commented next to the video.

A second wrote: “So bad using your kids for profit. So wrong on all levels.”

“This is wrong on so many levels!” repeated a third, while a fourth said, “Shame on you as a mother.”

Another simply wrote, “Shameful.”

After initially staying silent on the subject, a day later Katie finally decided to address the backlash.

In a video posted on Monday night, she asks her son: “Junior, you know them Hay Well drinks. Do you like them [sic]?

“Yeah, why?” he replies.

“Because people are saying why I am promoting you to promote a drink. It’s only because I’m getting stick… again.”

“Well, why am I not allowed to say what I like?”

“Well, you can,” Katie explains. “But just because they think it’s a promotion when I’m actually trying to say they’re good for you and I buy them in Tesco. Like with Harvey he’s not allowed to have anything with sugar in.”

She wrote next to the short video: “Saying the kids are promoting. Call me for letting the kids have drinks that are totally sugar free full of vitamins and amazing for Harv too that they love?? Better than them drinking fizzy drinks or juice! Have a day off (sic).”

It comes less than a week after the mum-of-five divided fans over a picture of Bunny covered in dirt and drinking out of a juice bottle.

After sharing the snap, some of her followers took her to task over the fact that the two-year-old was drinking juice out of a bottle, arguing using a bottle with a teat can potentially cause tooth decay in young kids.

“Giving juice in a baby bottle is not good for their little teeth. Best to give it to them in sippy cups,” one follower commented underneath the Instagram post.

While a second wrote: “Actually letting your child drink juice from a bottle or sippy cup is seen a big slice of tooth decay.. a straw cup or normal cup are the best options for not letting juice pool in the mouth.”
