‘They CAN learn to love healthy food!’ Video of an adorable little girl with a huge appetite for her fruit and vegetables takes the Internet by storm
A video of a little girl with an enormous appetite is taking the Internet by storm, and has been shared close to 370,000 times on social media.
The young girl, from China, is seen at a table wearing an adorable penguin baby bib and sitting in front of two plates of fruit and vegetables.
The little girl speedily made her way through a number of pieces of watermelon and appeared to be thoroughly enjoying herself as she grabbed some broccoli and cherry tomatoes. (youtube)
Overwhelmed by how much she enjoyed the taste of the healthy food, she then started to grab handfuls both fruit and vegetables before picking up the plate and trying to tip it all into her mouth.
When she ran out of watermelon pieces, her parents tipped more onto the plate and once again, she continued to eat.
Between giggles, she completed her meal before finishing it off with a bowl of soup.
The video has divided social media – with some praising her for loving healthy food and others slamming the parents for ‘over feeding’ the young girl.
‘Shes very cute but I think (even if she’s just eating vegetables and fruits) that she’s eating too much. She s starting with bad habits overeating like that but she still very cute lol,’ one Facebook user wrote.
‘It is very beautiful and nice to see a child eat well. This is a kind of healthy food for children at this age. However this child is eating too much,’ another man agreed.
Others were impressed.
‘I commend the child’s parents for giving her those healthy foods. Aside from the watermelon, were those sliced cherry tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber & corn kernels? Nowadays, you’d see children her age eat at fastfood restaurants and would say no at the sight of veggies,’ one man wrote.
‘At her age, she will know when she is full. It’s nice to see that her parents are giving her healthy choices. Not all parents do. If my child likes fruits, veggies, and soup, I too will encourage a healthy appetite for this kind of food,’ said another.
‘The POINT of the video is that kids learn to love junk food but likewise they can learn to love healthy food. Children that young are still learning how much they can eat. As long as the parents aren’t coercing the child to eat more, they will stop eating when they’re full,’ a woman agreed. (www.dailymail.co.uk)
