Yesterday was still the favorite food, today it is no longer touched. But the reasons children provide for it are sometimes just heartbreakingly funny!
Children are extremely picky when it comes to eating - some also say delicate about it - and there are hardly any parents who never have problems with it. And while pleadingly trying to convince your children to eat the veggies (or a meal they previously requested) can be a chore, the reasons kids can't eat can be delightful and wonderfully imaginative. The Instagram account "My Kid Can’t Eat This" collects exactly these reasons and sweetened our next meal with it:
Translation: Because it's too sweet. I actually had to freeze it so that it would stay that way forever and he could visit.
Translation: Because that's what his father looks like.
Translation: Because it's "too beautiful". She cries real tears of joy. She is four.
Translation: Because the pizza wasn't cut into triangles and squares are too posh.
Translation: Because she asked about cheese and crackers and not crackers and cheese.
Translation: Because he's disgusted at the hair. He is fifteen. Five. Ten.
Translation: Because I refused to cut the pizza into small pieces and pour milk over it like I did with cornflakes.
Translation: Because it's ruined. She cannot eat this wonderful sandwich that she made because the bread is broken in one place.
Translation: Because by removing the pips, the grapes now look like olives.
Translation: Because the ice is melting and the gummy bears are drowning in it.
Translation: Because shells belong in the sea. He was upset when I ate my portion anyway.
Translation: Because the honey on the sandwich looks like a bunny and she doesn't want to destroy that.
Translation: Because it's broken. And he means the breadcrumbs on the upper crust.
