If there's one universal fact about little kids, it's that they're super particular about food. And the new Instagram My Kid Can't Eat This has set out to prove just how picky they can be.
"#MyKidCantEatThis because the syrup is not in the right place on the plate."
They're experts at finding reasons they can't eat something.
"#MyKidCantEatThis cereal bar because he broke it."
It can be almost laughably frustrating — which the Instagram perfectly captures.
"#MyKidCantEatThis because the flour on the bread makes her hands feel weird."
Often, their reasons are just downright nonsensical.
"#MyKidCantEatThis, er drink this, because it's crunchy. It's milk."
Sometimes, their reasons don't even have to do with the food.
"#MyKidCantEatThis because it's on a green plate."
I mean, they are basically just little perfectionists. With totally outlandish standards.
"#MyKidCantEatThis because it has fork holes in it. He keeps saying it's sad while the new one I gave him is happy."
Nothing will get past their picky hawk-eyes.
"#MyKidCantEatThis because of this single bell pepper."
But as the smartest parents know, when in doubt, add sprinkles.
"#MyKidCantEatThis without sprinkles. (Beans bowl)."
Best of all, the Instagram is mostly run by submissions, so you can send your own crazy food stories to their community of 19,000 followers and rising.
"#MyKidCantEatThis because mommy peeled it and he wanted it peeled by daddy."
Their tiny human desires may not make sense to us...
""#mykidcanteatthis because the hot dogs aren't peeled. #allskinsaredisgusting"
But of course we appease them, because we love their picky little butts.
"#MyKidCantEatThis because there aren't chocolate chips on his plate of chocolate chip pancakes. 😒"
And luckily, we can always count down the days until they grow out of it.
"My kid can't eat this because of the white strings of death are choking out his will to citrus."
