Kourtney Kardashian served salads at her daughter’s Candyland-themed party

Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian leave Diana Ross's 75th birthday party at Warwick

Just know that I feel dumber having read about this story in an attempt to understand why it was a story. In Sunday’s episode of Keeping up the Kardashians, Kourtney was trying to organize her daughter Penelope’s seventh birthday party. Kourtney had decided on a Candyland theme for the party. Only Kourtney thinks candy is disgusting and if you eat a piece of candy, you’ll age 20 years and of course kids should never have candy at a birthday party (a party with the theme of “Candyland”). This is what happened when Kourtney was discussing it with Kim and Khloe:

Kourtney truly told her sisters: “You guys fill yourselves up with the biggest, number one cause of ageing. Don’t you just feel it when you eat that, that it sucks the life and youthfulness out of your skin?” All of the plastic surgery and injectibles that the Kardashians get regularly and Kourt is worried about CANDY? At a child’s Candyland-themed birthday party??

And so yes, the Candyland themed party happened and Kourtney served salads to the kids, apparently? It’s not a bad thing to ingrain healthy eating practices with your kids. That’s not it at all. The issue is that A) it’s bonkers to serve no candy and just salads at a Candyland-themed party and B) parents shouldn’t force disordered eating onto their kids. And every birthday party should have a cake. The end.

Kourtney says she did have “organic” treats at the party:

    That whole episode was so scripted it was embarrassing to watch lol. The fight was beyond fake. The party was already planned and candy was already ordered weeks before the fight. They just need the ratings and pr and they know they ALWAYS get attention when there is “family drama” going on. Plus doesn’t Kourtney have breast implants? So putting candy in your body is a “Hell No” but whatever the f*ck they put in breast implants is perfectly fine with her?

    Meh. Sounds like they had treats the kids would enjoy, in addition to the salad. Also, I have an almost three year old who would eat the heck out of a good salad at a birthday party.

  3. GreenBunny says:

    Organic cotton candy cracks me up. Like it’s somehow healthier because it’s pure organic sugar rather than plain sugar.

    • Anya says:

      That’s what I came here to say as well.

    • boredblond says:

      and I’m sure it was labeled cruelty-free, gluten free, dairy free…that made me smirk too

    • Jess says:

      Reminds of when Cheetos sold “organic cheese puffs”, I started laughing so hard in the grocery store I was crying. As if it was plucked straight from the all natural and organic free range cheese puff tree in the Amazon 😂 They eventually changed the branding on it to “simply cheese puffs” but I still giggle thinking about how ridiculous that was!

      • JaneEyreApparent says:

        I used to work in a grocery store and once had a woman ask me for organic ice cubes, Seriously.

    • Jillybean says:

      Organic just means you dump hydrocarbons on it in the growing process like benzene, tocophenol, alcohol, asphaltenes etc…. public needs to look up the chemical group of the term ‘organic’

    It’s still in the ’90s in Southern California, plenty of people might have wanted salad. The most popular dish at Thanksgiving is my Auntie Ellen’s salad. What a strange thing for people to be upset about.

  5. Erinn says:

    I know she gets more praise than the others, but Kortney has some major food issues. She also promotes a lot of ‘natural’ health alternatives which don’t have any real proof of effectiveness.

    I really think in her case the obsession with ‘natural’ and ‘healthy’ is really just a cover for an eating disorder. You don’t get all that work done and then talk about only putting healthy things in your body.

    • ReginaGeorge says:

      Kourtney has copped to implants when she was in her early 20’s, (which she says she regretted) but beyond that, she’s the most natural of her sisters. She’s the only one that doesn’t seem to take any shorts using by plastic/cosmetic surgery. She still has the same face/body she did when the show first began. She may be OD about eating clean and healthy and cutting out the sugar, but she’s the most disciplined one out of all of the sisters when it comes to her approach at staying young and fit in the most natural way as possible,

    She had bbq food…. and a salad. Arrest me too because I serve salads at kids parties along with the other courses.

  7. Zee says:

    When I was a kid my mom served several salads on my birthday parties along side sausages, candy and other kids themed stuff and all the kids loved it.

  8. Cay says:

    I’m not sure she understands why people are supposed to eat organic. The studies prove that organic food does not provide a healthier option than non-organic foods. Organic as a way of farming is better for the workers and the environment. (And when the environment is cleaned up, it provides a healthier environment for everyone.)

    As for the sugar, I’ve spent most of my life working in and around the sugar industry in one way or another. There’s no difference between sugars. Sugar is sugar. The difference comes with that fact that high fructose corn syrup can be made so cheaply that this type of sugar is now so readily available that it can be added to most products with little extra cost. So, more and more products have sugar added to them that probably don’t need sugar added, but it’s not the type of sugar that makes a difference.

    It’s really frustrating when celebrities try to tell the world how to eat healthy and they have no background in these issues. I’ll bet you Kourtney is a closet anti-vaxxer.

    • Zantasia says:

      Thank you Cay. Sugar is sugar. My brain melts whenever one of my friends says that something is better for her weight loss because it’s sweetened with agave. Nah, still sugar. Just own it.

      • Cay says:

        I’m thinking about making t-shirts that read: Sugar is sugar. It’s annoying to listen to people talk about letting their kids have “real” sugar but never high fructose corn syrup. Trust me, ain’t gonna make a difference. Sugar is sugar.

  9. Lizzie says:

    my friend was really weird with her first child about food and after being ridiculed (rightfully) for making basically a dog treat for her son’s first birthday b/c she didn’t want to give him “sugar” she realized that she was pushing her own disordered eating onto an infant and it was messed up. she has disordered eating b/c her mother pushed it on her, which backfired and she spent most of her life secret eating and being overweight because of it. it took a “fight” with a friend to realize she was being totally insane for not giving her kid cake once a year. 10 years later her kids eat healthy but there are no restrictions.both are healthy, smart and incredible athletes.

  10. Thaisajs says:

    Oh my god, they’re kids. Just order a couple of pizzas and a cake from Costco and you’re done.

  11. Mousy says:

    Oooh the irony if caring so much about things being ~natural and organic~ when youve had multiple synthetic chemicals pumped into your face and body (yes shes the more natural looking one in comparison to the rest of the clan but theres NO WAY she doesnt get injectables).

  12. wellsie says:

    The number one cause of aging is TIME PASSING but mmkay.

  13. Shaye says:

    OK not to agree with a Kardashian here…but she is absolutely right that sugar wreaks havoc on your skin. It messes with your collagen, among other things. This is an older article but makes the point:


    Having said that, it’s really not a problem for young children who have more insulin resistance and are not aging yet. They should definitely be allowed to go on a sugar binge for a birthday party they are only kids once!

  14. Charfromdarock says:

    Organic cotton candy

    Ffs. These people are as delusional as the Royals.

  15. 2lazy4username says:

    I hope those implants are organic.

    • ME says:

      Or the make-up/perfume she sells with her sisters. It’s all chemicals but she has no issue with that.
