Gino D’Acampo branded a bully by Loose Women’s Janet over parenting rant

December 16, 2021

Loose Women star Janet Street-Porter has slammed celebrity chef Gino D’Acampo after he explained how he deals with fussy eating kids.

It comes after the beloved This Morning chef appeared on the Sweat, Snot and Tears podcast where he explained how children can be prevented from developing bad eating habits.

The 45-year-old explained how they can be trained by their parents not to have a fussy pallet by forcing them to eat all the food that's on their plate.

But not everyone agreed with the TV star’s controversial opinions as the fiery presenter shared her thoughts on his controversial thoughts on air.

During Wednesday’s instalment of the popular ITV daytime show, Janet raised her concerns about Gino’s suggestions as she branded him a “dictatorial bully” on the show.

She fumed: “Talk about moron parenting, that is dictatorial bullying parenting, Gino D’Acampo.

“I grew up in a house where my father was a bit like Gino D’Acampo. If we didn’t eat what was on our plate, we had to sit at the table till we’d finished it.

“Actually, I could eat most things but the one things I couldn’t eat was something called a butterbean.

“They’re these big white things and they used to sit on my plate like almost pulsating ugliness.

She added: “I would wait until my mum or dad or someone was looking the other way and I could slide one into my pocket.”

“I’d always be trying to have a pocket handy and I got obsessed by these butterbeans and my dad – like Gino – would keep serving up these things and I never ate one.

“They became so ugly and repellent in my head and it’s all completely ridiculous.”

The star recalled how much she “really hated” her dad for nagging her to eat the unpopular vegetable,

Speaking on Sweat, Snot and Tears podcast, Gino said: “When people talk to me about fussy children with food and ask me, ‘What do I think?’ I tell them there is no such a thing as a fussy child. There isn’t.

“But there is a thing of moron parenting. By moron, I mean idiots. A child doesn’t grow up fussy, it’s not possible. It's the parents.”

The dad-of-three went on to confess that his youngest child Mia, nine, will get sent to bed if she doesn’t eat her dinner and can expect to eat last night’s meal for breakfast.
