Parents who taught their kids to share food surprised to see them just share food pics on Instagram

Mumbai: Using data from nearly three-quarters of the world’s countries, a new analysis from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) found that students who do not regularly eat with their parents are significantly more likely to be truant at school. Indian parents always encourage their kids to share food with each other and always et together. But with the growing use of technology, the meaning of sharing has indeed changed.


Shwetank, whose parents also taught him to share food with his brother, friends and all needy people was later found sharing food pics on Instagram. The only sharing he knew was sharing something on social media. Shwetank had always shred his experience, food, and ideas on Facebook but recently he had taken to Instagram just like a Fish to water. Instagram made him interested in different cuisines and restaurants. But he always remembered what his dad used to say when he was a child, ‘to share your food with others’ and so he did. He has shared some 120 food pics from his Insta handle and has received comments and likes.

It was only yesterday when his father asked him if he was sharing his food in school with his friends and he showed him the pics which he had shared recently. Well, the story is a learning point for many parents, as sharing nowadays has a completely different meaning. Parents need to be extra cautious when they use the word ‘share’, because sharing is possible through many sources like FB, Insta and Snapchat.

Shwetank did realize his mistake and he never uses Insta to share anything nowadays, in fact he has reverted back to Facebook.
