public play area gripe

kieran and i were at the mall play area the other day (where food and drink are prohibited), and a kid around 3 or 4 years old was running around with gummy snacks.  i was REALLY pissed, because Kieran started following this kid around because he wanted his snacks, and started to cry when he couldn’t have any.  I really wanted to yell at the parents of the kid, but surprise surprise, they were nowhere to be found…so that’s my gripe today.  Am I out of line for being upset that parents would let their kids run around a public play area with a snack where there aren’t supposed to be snacks, and then my kid cries because (1) i won’t let him have those snacks, and (2) the other kid wouldn’t share anyway (he ran away).
