Diary Of A 5-Year-Old: Thinking About Food Again


When you lick a slug your tongue goes all tingly and you can't feel it for ages after. Fish fingers taste better than slugs but slugs taste better than liver. Liver is the most horribliest. Emily from kindergarden says what her baby brother does in his nappy, that's worse than liver.

If something tastes really bad you can say your tummy hurts so you don't have to eat it. Or you can say you are full up but then you don't get to eat pudding either. That's not fair because you are never too full for pudding, everybody says so.

Banana ice cream with chocolate sprinklers is the best thing in the whole wide world.

Peas are horrible. I tried to hide my peas in my pocket when mummy was in the kitchen but she saw and I had to eat them anyway and then they were all squished and fluffy. Mummy says she has eyes in the back of her head. I can't find them but they must be there because she even saw when I tried to hide broccoli in my glass of milk and when I fed beans to the cat. Putting your vegetables in the cat's bowl doesn't work either.

The cat doesn't like beans.

When there is something new for dinner mummy always says I should try it because I might like it. That means it's something extra horrible and probably green.

If I keep my mouth closed when I chew my food that makes mummy happy.

It's a good way to get ice cream with sprinklers for pudding.
