    19 Things Kids Have Refused To Eat For Ridiculous Reasons

    Sometimes your food looks too much like a butt.

    If you have a picky-eating kid, you know they can refuse to eat things for infuriatingly hilarious reasons. Like:

    1. "I can't eat my peanut butter and honey sandwich because the honey looks like a rabbit and I don't want to wreck it!"

    2. "I can't eat this because I farted on it and now it's a fart muffin."
