TEEN Mom Jenelle Evan's husband David Eason gave their daughter Ensley, four, a caffeinated Starbucks coffee drink and filmed it on his phone while driving.
This wasn't the first time the Teen Mom parents have been slammed for feeding their four-year-old the sugary drink.
On David's Instagram story yesterday, the toddler was pictured sitting in the front seat sipping on the coffee topped with whipped cream.
Ensley was strapped into a bright pink booster seat on the passenger side.
She clinked the plastic to-go cup of her sweet treat with her father's iced coffee.
As David filmed the coffee toast with his daughter, he appeared to be simultaneously driving single-handed down the road.
At one point, David had his coffee in one hand and was filming in selfie-mode with another while still appearing to be operating the moving vehicle.
The appeased tot continued to sip cheerily on the signature green Starbucks straw.
This wasn't the first time the David and Jenelle have been spotted giving Ensley the caffeinated beverage.
Back in June of this year, Jenelle went under fire as fans slammed her for allowing Ensley to consume the Starbucks drink.
The trio stopped by a Starbucks drive through to order some cold brew before going grocery shopping and some people have called the reality stars' order for Ensley.
Sitting in the drivers seat, David tried to order a French vanilla frappucino for Ensley, but the Starbucks did not have the right ingredients in stock.
So the young parents decided to order Ensley a vanilla bean cream frappuccino with mocha, while they chose to have vanilla flavored cold brew for themselves.
The tot's eyes widened as Jenelle handed her the milky drink topped with layers of whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.
But eagle eyed fans noted the drink contained caffeine and would not be appropriate for the four-year-old.
One YouTube fan demanded: "What is the drink you got Ensley?
"Non caffeine right?"
Another added: "My kids love their frappes too so I wanted to give you a tip that they actually have espressos in the frappes so I ask for decaf.
"I get an extra shot of decaf espresso too bc they like the coffee taste."
The vanilla bean frapuccino is made up of milk and flavoured syrup but not caffeine, but the mocha blend contains 70mg of caffeine in the tall size.
While there are no federal guidelines on the topic, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) discourages caffeine consumption for kids.
IN FARRAH'S CORNER
Jenelle recently supported Teen Mom Farrah Abraham for allowing her daughter Sophia, 12, to wear make-up, calling it "cool" for preteens.
The mom of three, 29, who has faced criticism for putting makeup on her own toddler daughter, Ensley, defended her former Teen Mom co-star for allowing her preteen to wear makeup.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Jenelle said: “I really don't have a problem with makeup. I think it's cool when you get to the preteen age and you start your makeup."
At that stage in life, Jenelle said: “Trial and error really goes a long way. So that's awesome. Good for Farrah on that!”
However, the mother-of-three said that when it comes to some of the clothing choices Farrah has allowed for Sophia to sport, she added: “I don’t agree with kids wearing skimpy clothes.”
The former Teen Mom star said that some of the clothing options Farrah has the 12-year-old wearing reminds her of Fashion Nova’s clothing line for children.
“Some of the clothes that Fashion Nova kids promotes is kind of skimpy too and it reminds me of that.
Jenelle added: "They have girls in crop tops and I think that when you're old enough you can choose what you want to wear, but when you're in your parents' home you should not be wearing that type of stuff."
The parenting slams come after David, the fired MTV star, killed their pet goat Elvis, filmed himself eating him, and then showed off his severed head.
David shocked fans with the footage in September last year.
He addressed the camera directly as he bit into a grilled piece of meat and said: "If you're wondering what a goat taste like off the grill, well I'm here to tell you: tastes like chicken, tastes a little like beef or pork and it's real good."
The Teen Mom 2 alum then revealed that he was in fact eating Elvis, who had been born on their farm and they had raised for over a year.
David had previously called Elvis his "sweet baby."
More than one year after David killed and ate Elvis, he and Jenelle cooked up some deer jerky before heading to a pumpkin patch with their kids.
Jenelle shared glimpses into their day via her Instagram Story, showing herself smiling in the car as they made their way to the farm.
Hours earlier, Jenelle shared a video of David preparing "sweet and spicy teriyaki deer jerky" in their kitchen. Son Jace, TK, could be seen looking on.
She captioned a post on their way to the farm: "Time for the #pumpkinpatch."
Ensley could be seen looking out the car window in the video.
It's unclear where the deer meat came from.
