Kourtney Kardashian Defends Wanting Healthy Food at Daughter’s Candy Land Birthday

Sugar, spice, and everything nice? Kourtney Kardashian has some thoughts.

On Sunday’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the Poosh founder and her sister, Kim Kardashian, sparred over the menu for their daughters’ Candy Land-themed joint birthday party. While Kanye West’s wife wanted classic, sweet treats, Scott Disick’s ex-girlfriend advocated for healthier options to be served at the event, which honored Kim’s 6-year-old, North West, and Kourtney’s 7-year-old, Penelope Disick.

Though Kourtney claimed candy causes aging and food coloring “gives people diseases,” she eventually agreed to having “some candy” served at the bash.

However, after the episode aired, fans criticized the 40-year-old’s strict rules on confectionery.

When one Twitter user mentioned how something as simple as “breathing the air” can make one ill, the mother of three immediately clapped back.

“That absolutely does not mean that you can not do your best to live a healthy life and teach your children to do the same,” Kourtney responded.

When another social media commenter wrote, “you can’t have a candyland themed party without candy,” Kardashian clarified that she wanted a variety of foods at the shindig.

“I never said NO candy,” she explained.. “I said not all junk food, let’s have some salads etc, and @KimKardashian said she wanted the ice cream truck and I suggested organic ice cream with some non dairy options. Moderation.”

“I didn’t want an overload, and I wanted some healthier options too,” she added. “I am actually shocked that people are so unaware of how harmful certain foods can be. Wow.”

Well said, Kourtney!
