I'm a crunchy mom – the way I peel my toddler's fruit has people REALLY riled up

A YOUNG mother claims to have come up with the "easiest" way to peel a mango for her child – but social media users are not convinced.

Alice Llani Bender, 22, is an outspoken proponent of attachment parenting, unschooling, and freebirthing – and apparently, she doesn't see the need for utensils.


In a TikTok video posted earlier this month, Alice shared how she peels a mango to feed to her nearly two-year-old son, Fern.

"I'm gonna show you the easiest way to cut a mango," she said, holding it up for the camera.

She then brought the fruit to her mouth, using her teeth to bite off the skin bit by bit.

She turned the mango in circles, snipping off pieces of the peel with her mouth and then spitting them out.

Once she had made enough of a dent, she used her fingers to rip off the remaining peel.

But her unconventional methods didn't end there.

Alice then sunk her teeth into the top of the mango, biting off a piece which she then spit out into her fingers and gave to her son, who put it in his own mouth.

She took another bite, allowing Fern to pull the piece from her mouth to eat himself.

Alice's clip has earned plenty of social media buzz, but some commenters are a bit baffled.

"Well that is surely one way to do it," quipped one.

"Definitely not the easiest," wrote another.

"Perfect, I'll do this for my houseguests the next time they come over," joked a third.

Some also warned that mango skin contains urushiol, a chemical compound also found in poison ivy and poison oak.

However, a few commenters said that they do the same thing, with one woman conceding that Alice's way means there's less to clean.
