When Alicia Silverstone posted a video of herself feeding her son chewed up food out of her mouth, little did she know it would start a trend that would terrorize kids across the nation.
Well, not really. But as part of his ongoing “film yourself doing something horrible to your kids” project, Jimmy Kimmel recently asked viewers to proffer pre-chewed food to their children and film the results. As you can probably guess, most of the kids were not that into it, with reactions ranging from “I don’t want your germs to chew with” to “it looks like poop.” But first prize goes to the mom who actually got her kid to try it (around the 3:10 mark). I’m also pretty into the budding metal head at 3:18 who says “hi Jimmy, you suck.” She may, in fact, be the breakout star of this whole project.
So what have we learned? If you want to babybird food to your kids, you should probably start before they’re old enough to know that it’s a weird thing to do. It might also help to name them after an animal.
