Kelly Clarkson was accused of "child abuse" after she posting a video of her feeding her two-year-old daughter some Nutella.

The three time-Grammy winner (34) posted a video to Instagram of her adorable daughter River trying the chocolate spread for the first time and the shamers were out nearly immediately, criticising her decision to give the toddler a sugary snack.

"River, do you like Nutella?" she asks the tot.

"Yeah," River replies before doing a cute little dance.

While many commented on the sweet nature of the video, others were quick to critique her parenting choice, with one saying: "Giving food like this to a child is child abuse."

Another said: "Nutella is hella bad for you", while one said the dessert is "PACKED with sugars."

Fans were quick to jump to Clarkson's defence, with one impassioned poster, writing: "Some people need to get a life. It's freaking Nutella, not rat poison. If you genuinely think giving your child Nutella is child abuse, then you must have a super warped idea of what true abuse really is. God forbid a parent give their child a little sugar! What do you think is in all candy that will be in your kids Easter basket on Sunday???

"The caption also says that it's River's first ever Nutella, so it's not like she is letting her daughter eat a whole jar every day. Nothing wrong with letting your child have a treat."
