Kids are gross and eat everything and anything when they are little. We asked Mums what was the worst thing their child had eaten, here are some of the answers.

  1. My son was at preschool and a little girl pooped in the sand pit and coated it with sand then offered it to my son and told him it was a treat. So he ate it all! J. Edwards, Facebook
  2. In one week my 8 month old ate 2 lizard poos off the verandah and to top it off I found him chewing on a big toe nail!! K.Egan, Facebook.
  3. When I saw my 1 year old chewing on something that I didn’t give him, I stuck my finger in his mouth to see what he was eating and had pulled out a roach with wings that was still sorta alive and half chewed up. R.Harrison, Facebook.
  4. My 2.5 yr old boy found a chip he had dropped in our yard a few hrs earlier. It was covered in ants. He picked it up, I said its got ants all over it so you can’t eat it now – yucky!! Oh yes I can he thought and ate the chip ants and all!!! T.James, Facebook.
  5. My daughter, when she was about 13 months old and crawling about on the patio, picked up a dead snail that had been baked hard on to the patio and popped it in her mouth! D.Waite, Facebook.
  6. Snails. He tried to smuggle them in his bed room so I couldn’t find them and take them off him and he could eat them later. V.Honey, Facebook.
  7. My boy ate a gecko, while it was still alive. S. Matthews, Facebook.
  8. Mouth full of dog biscuits. He screamed at me when I scraped it from his mouth lol! L.Patondodd, Facebook.
  9. Cat poo with a side of kitty litter ugh!!! C.Lim, Facebook.
  10. The old hard chewed bubble gum she found in a random car park. R.Pushie, Facebook.

I thought my kids had eaten gross things but maybe they were pretty good after reading through all the answers.

  • One day i saw my daughter chewing on something so popped my finger in her mouth to hook out whatever it was that was inside her mouth and out popped a christmas beetle. Scared the life out of me.


  • i think this is the first time i’m actually happy to have an incredibly fussy eater! Yuck!


  • These are quite funny but stomach churning. My son as a toddler ate some dried white dog poo and it made me vomit. I brushed his teeth every time I looked at him that day.


  • Bahahaha some of these things are really grosse. My daughter when she was 18 months ate the blue loo thing out of the toilet. My walls were blue and she smelt like a toilet


  • Oh these are so gross! Especially the sand covered poo!


  • Oh so funny, are these for real. I guess they must be true stories.


  • ewwwwww gross!! My mum told me my big sister used to feed me snails out of the garden quite regularly, mum would come outside and I would have a green ooze dripping from my mouth


  • And my now late Grandma nearly had a heart attack when she found us eating sour sobs. A stray cat or dog might have “weed”on it.
    Imagine if she was alive to read these answers.


  • gross. so glad my kids never ate anything this nasty!


  • I’m not going to say what my bub just about put in his mouth at a beach in Thailand.


  • I was looking after my nephew when he was about 2 gave dogs some dry food he shared them as well, later I looked out and his face was brown,the smell made me vomit as I cleaned his mouth and face dog poo he had eaten in the dog biscuits place. Did not tell my sister in law to this day.. naughty auntie was I


  • They all sound disgusting. The worst a family member has eaten was a pie baked entirely of mud.


  • Haha, kids will eat anything! My son wasn’t that adventurous but my Mum loves to tell the story of me poohing in the bath and eating it. I have to take her word for it as I have no memory of it and no long-lasting effects.




  • All of these completely gross me out. The worst I’ve found my child eating was a caterpillar – which seems dreamy compared to some of these on the list.
