MOST parents choose to celebrate their toddler's birthday with adecorated cake and candles.
But not mum-of-two Dani, who explained how she swapped the more traditional sweet treat for “tomahawk steak and wild-caught lobster” with “grass-fed organic butter."
The 31-year-old, who is pregnant with her third child, took to TikTok (@dani_fitmom) and posted a video showing her one-year-old daughter and two-year-old son tucking into the rather unusual choice of meal on their birthdays.
Alongside the video, which has divided opinion online, she penned: "It’s our family tradition – surf n’ turf platter to celebrate!”
“Both my kids prefer steak over sweets so this is how we do it.”
In the clips, the kids can be seen gnawing down on a huge steak bone after seemingly ripping off all of the meat.
