Danielle Lloyd blasted by fans for giving her son Harry, seven, a food allergy testing kit at home and turning him gluten free
Fans commented on her Instagram post to warn her of the possible dangers of cutting out food groups in young children and claimed the post was "false advertising".
In the post the former WAG said: "I’m starting the new year feeling great after finding out what was causing me bloating and pain after eating food, with @Lifelabtests at-home intolerance and allergy testing kit.
"The results were so good that my son Harry did a test, too, and since changing his diet to gluten free, he hasn’t been in any pain."
But some followers were not impressed, one hit back with: "You should not be advocating doing this on children."
The follower replied to Danielle's comment, writing: "…[what if it] makes no difference because it isn't the root cause of the issue and in the mean time they've missed those nutrients from their diet.
"It's being wrongly promoted and advertised."
Another agreed writing: "A child should not be put on a gf diet unless prescribed by a specialist.
"Symptoms can be similar for lots of illnesses, gf diet can do more damage unless properly diagnosed [sic]."
The feisty former Miss England hit back at her critics, stating: "Well I’ve cut out the things for harry and he is so much better and not in pain so it’s got to mean something as long as my hurt is pain free am happy [sic]."
Available from lifelabtesting.com, the basic test checks over 40 food items and covers intolerances such as grains, eggs and meat.
Costing £99, lots of followers spoke out to say that there were many other ways of determining if your body was intolerant to something without spending money.
One said: "Just go to your gp and they will send you onto doctors that specialise in allergies/food intolerances.
"My daughter gets seen by a gastroenterologist and dietician through the nhs for FREE!!! [sic]"
But it wasn't just concern for Danielle's son Harry, seven, that had fans commenting.
One pleaded: "Please though, do get any persistent bloating checked at the doctor.
"Feeling full after eating little and bloating can be symptoms of ovarian cancer. Be informed and wishing you all a happy, healthy 2019."
