HAILSHAM, England, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- A British woman said she was lectured by a city official for feeding white bread to ducks instead of whole grain.

Lisa Taplin, 34, of Hailsham, England, said she and her sons, Luke, 4, and Dylan, 2, were feeding the ducks at a local pond when a council warden approached and told her the white bread she was using was "unhealthy" for the water fowl, The Sun reported Thursday.

Taplin said the warden told her giving the ducks white bread was "like feeding kids chips every day."

"He said it would be better to bring whole meal, granary or bird seed. He walked off, leaving me feeling guilty," Taplin said.

Nickey Caria, Hailsham's deputy town clerk, said the council warden was "right" to lecture the woman.
