Probably the worst thing an adult can eat, and now getting the little girl hooked also. Hope it's in moderation, which is okay!

In a nation where 50% of the population is obese, the last thing we need is more articles glorifying donuts and speaking of "comfort food" as unifying families. Being a slave to certain foods like donuts and chocolate (which seems to be OK with us LDS types) is just as bad as being a slave to drugs, tobacco, or hot drinks (which is not OK with us LDS types).

Clearly the previous commenters have not had these delicious treats. I recommend the blueberry cake donuts or a maple bar. Donuts are a fun treat every once in awhile. I highly doubt the author is attempting to get her daughter to become obese, but is merely enjoying a treat with her child.

Dannyboy, the issue isn't about enjoying things with your child. Enjoyment of time together and eating donuts are mutually exclusive - you don't need one to have the other. Spending quality time with your child is awesome, but why does it have to involve the worst foods you can eat? Why not go on a walk together? Fly a kite? Or if you're eating while hanging out together, how about a picnic?

Point is you can accomplish all the things the donut is accomplishing here without the donut. And it would be more responsible for a major publication to do its part in the community by encouraging other forms of consumption.

Can I bring donuts to the picnic? You really should try them. They are AMAZING!!!

Look out folks, the donut police are out in force!

@Brave Sir Robin: Donuts being compared to drugs? Are you serious?

I eat several donuts a week. I am 47 and at 18% body fat.
