Guys, you are not alone in the notorious battle between kids and their food. 

 

Even if you’ve spent just mere minutes with children you’ll know that they are experts in finding reasons not to eat something.  

Their arguments don't have to make sense and definitely don't have to be about the food – as proven by one kid’s aversion to bread because it makes her "hands feel weird".

 

OK, then.

 

Thanks to the hilarious new Instagram account, My Kid Can’t Eat This, we can see just how picky little ones can be.

 

Behold the brilliant (we mean outrageous *cough*) reasons children won't eat their food. 

 

Their cases …

The moral of the story? If in doubt, add sprinkles.
