This Instagram Account Posts The Hilarious Reasons Why Kids Won’t Eat Their Food (104 Pics)


Kids are picky eaters and there are very few parents out there who haven’t had to deal with this. Even though it’s a hassle to convince your children to eat their veggies (or any meal they actually asked you to make for them), the reasons kids give us for why they can’t eat something can be adorably ridiculous. Like not wanting their peanut butter and jelly sandwich because it has peanut butter and jelly in it.

My Kid Can’t Eat This is an Instagram account that collects the hilarious comments kids made about, well, why they can’t eat something. Scroll down, upvote your faves, and let us know in the comments what funny reasons your kids have given you when they refused to eat something, dear Pandas.

The Instagram account was started back in 2015 and currently has more than 114k followers. Though it’s run anonymously, HuffPost found out that it’s the brainchild of mother-of-three Heather. She got the idea to make the account after having endless fights over food with her kids.

#3

Because if Honey Nut Cheerios taste like honey and Chocolate Cheerios taste like chocolate, this one must taste like the cast of Frozen and she doesn’t want to eat Elsa.

“The reasons my kids can’t eat foods range from hilarious, infuriating to ridiculous. They know they have to taste all foods and are all healthy, so while I’m not seriously worried, it still drives me crazy!” Heather told HuffPost.

“I hope that other parents feel a little less alone when it comes to food drama,” she added.

The My Kid Can’t Eat This account asks parents to submit pictures of the food their kids absolutely refused to eat and add a quick comment with the reason why. However, the last time the Instagram account posted a new photo was back in February 2016, so the page is probably taking a “small” break from internet stardom.

After watching the movie “Ratatoulli” 658098764 times and asking me to make what they made 787628 times I spent hours scouring the internet for the exact same recipe from the movie and made it and now they can’t eat it because a rat didn’t make it

Generally, there are broader reasons why kids are fussy eaters. For example, if something feels gross in their mouths of their hands, children will avoid it. But there are ways around this.

One way to get picky eaters to eat is to make sure they’re not snacking too much and are actually hungry for lunch or for dinner, according to KevinMD.com.

#7

Because the hairs disgust him. He’s fifteen. Fif. Teen

#9

Because by removing the cherry seeds, I turned them into olives

Something else that works is having the entire family sit down to eat. If your child sees you eating the same food that’s in front of them, they’ll be more likely to follow your example. That also means that your child should be eating the same food that you’re eating (this is also a great reason to start eating healthier).

At the end of the day, kids are smart and you should have a proper conversation with them about food: what’s good for them, what’s bad for them. And why it’s important for them to eat their veggies!
