Ambitious pageant moms will stop at nothing to improve their daughters’ chances of winning — including putting girls as young as four years old on diets! Shocking!
On the Jan. 26 episode of Toddlers and Tiaras, two cunning pageant moms admit they make their daughters follow strict diets. “You don’t get as good of a score if your dress doesn’t fit good,” says the mother of 8-year-old contestant Ever Rose, according to The Daily Mail. These girls are TOO young to be dieting already!
Ever Rose’s mother restricts the girl’s diet to only 1600 calories a day! “Several weeks before the pageant, we kind of start watching a little more what we eat to make sure that our clothes fit well,” she says.
The young girl is willing to make sacrifices to win. “I need to watch what I eat, but sometimes I do get hungry,” she confesses. Ever already lost 10 lbs., which her mom says made dance moves and routines easier.
Yet, when Ever tries on a gown, it’s too big. “You gotta quit losing all that weight, Ever Rose,” her mom scolds. “You gonna be tiny as I don’t know what and you’ll have to get a new dress.”
The other star of the episode, four-year-old Adriana, lost 4 lbs. dieting! Although she stuck a meals of salads, her sequined dress didn’t fit.
“I will do whatever it takes to get her to where she needs to be,” her mother says. “I would love for her to be discovered.”
