Picky eaters have an exceptional talent of making mealtime an absolute nightmare. And if finicky kids have their way (which they are wont to do), parents’ lives become a living hell three times a day, seven days a week. But there’s a refuge parents can go to. It’s a place where they can vent about the maddening, exhausting affair that time around the dining table has become and just laugh and laugh.

Really.

The Instagram account My Kid Can’t Eat This brings together all those frustrated parents and reassures them that they’re not the only ones having a tough time. It might not ease fussy feeding times but it’ll at least make it go by faster.

Bubbles are obviously a no-no.

#MyKidCantEatThis because there’s a bubble near the crust. He doesn’t even eat the crust. #GuiltyByAssociation-@missmanarose

Food can be evil.

No, like really evil.

#MyKidCantEatThis because “red is a scary color.” #ButWineIsRed – @chefnicole

Oh, if only they knew real cats weren’t harmed in the making of these chocolate bars.

#MyKidCantEatThis because it’s made out of “kitty cats.” – @lmarkham11

And not everything can be pizza.

Food can be way too pretty to ingest, you know.

Or too cute.

Or it’s all just too much.

#MyKidCantEatThis because they’re too “noodle-y.” – @jlowdermilk

Crumbs are the worst.

#MyKidCantEatThis because of the “two black spots.” They are bagel crumbs. – @little_elf_rb

Correction. Nothing is more disgusting than black pepper.

#MyKidCantEatThis because it has “creeps” on it…(black pepper). – @ChiseledMomma

Sometimes it isn’t the food itself, but the receptacle it came in.

#MyKidCantEatThis because they’re not in a box. – @Pickios

Or the problem is who opened the food.

#MyKidCantEatThis because daddy opened it. Makes sense. His man hands changed the flavor. – @petrapribylova

Or the wrong parent peeled it. Silly.

#MyKidCantEatThis because mommy peeled it and he wanted it peeled by daddy. -Jenn Mace

Or you opened it all wrong.

#MyKidCantEatThis because I slightly peeled back the top of the yogurt cup. – @remello93

But, really, it all comes down to the devil’s food.

#MyKidCantEatThis because “it’s going to hurt me.” Peanut butter. Always the villain. – @fiveflowertextiles
