Hours after defending her use of the N-word on This Morning, Katie Price has found herself embroiled in more controversy after posting a sweet photo of her two youngest children. On Thursday (27 April), the reality star and mother-of-five shared a snap on Instagram which showed her youngest children Jett, three, and Bunny, two, enjoying breakfast.

While many admired the cute snap of toddlers enjoying a meal, some of her 1.5 million followers took issue with the fact that their bottles were filled with juice.

A third agreed: "Surely they should be drinking from a cup by now."

According to the research from the NHS, comfort sucking on sweetened drinks is the biggest cause of tooth decay in young children.

The NHS advises that "by the time your baby's 12 months old, they should have stopped using bottles with teats or they may find it hard to break the habit of sucking on a bottle for comfort."

The 38-year-old star, who is a regular panellist on Loose Women, was scolded by This Morning host Phillip Schofield after saying the word N***er twice while discussing the online abuse her disabled son was routinely subjected to.

Following her interview, Price posted a video on her Instagram page defending her use of the racial slur, stating that although she understood the term was "unacceptable", she was glad she was raising awareness.

She also garnered the support of viewers who believed that she used the word in the right context and not as a form of insult.
