Sharing the video with fans, Charlotte wrote:”Noah’s first time trying a chip I can’t wait to eat chips & graveh with him.”
The “video also showed the star, and her fiancé, singing together as they enjoyed dinner in a restaurant that as complete with live music entertainment.
Charlotte joked: “And me sounding like a bloke on the mic. We had a ball on Saturday at @clubrasoi.astley unexpected & unplanned nights are the best.”
But some fans were not amused, and blasted the TV star for feeding solid foods to her baby.
One follower snapped: “Don’t give him chips so young.”
Charlotte herself hit back at the criticism, writing: “He’s nearly 7 months & there was no salt on it.. He’s my son thank you so I’ll do what I want!”
Fans were also quick to support the star.
One wrote in the comment section of her post: “There’s always the few that have to pipe up keep opinions to yourselves I also have a 7 month old and he loved to chomp a chip.”
Another offered: “I’m pretty sure 1 chip is allowed to a balanced diet and let’s face it they suck it to death and the remains end up on the floor they don’t consume a whole chip some people need to get off their high horses and just leave others alone.”
Another commented: “The girl let her boy suck on a chip , it’s a chip, it goes mushy soft when saliva gets on it, she is holding the end , for Pete’s sake.”
And another wrote: “[Charlotte]’s so hilarious… and so what if she decides to give her baby a chip?! God some people with their opinions! She’s the mum she decides!!!”
