Feeding a toddler is like brushing your teeth while eating cookies: Messy. We love the good people at My Kid Can't Eat This who round up the best of the worst excuses for not eating perfectly edible food. Check out our favorites:

#MyKidCantEatThis because "a mouse already had some."

#MyKidCantEatThis because a lion touched it. In her defense, the lion does appear to be on something. #JustSayNo

#MyKidCantEatThis because it's "too beautiful." She's crying actual tears of joy. She's 4.

#MyKidCantEatThis because there's ice on his popsicle. #TheHorror #Disgusting #IceIceToddler

"The food faces I made for Caden's lunch on Sunday that he refused to eat. He said it would kill him. Tear people, there were tears. #FoodFaceFail"

#MyKidCantEatThis because they're no longer circles. #PancakeCircleOfTrustBroken #CryAllTheTears

#MyKidCantEatThis because it's cold and "tastes like you mixed a bunch of fruits together." Um, I did. #ItsCalledFruitSalad

#MyKidCantEatThis because it looks like daddy. #NiceTry

#MyKidCantEatThis because there are too many spoons in the bowl. (You'll never, EVER, guess who put them there.)

#MyKidCantEatThis because she doesn't eat chicken legs. Only "nuggets and boobs." #NUGGETSANDBOOBS #BANDNAMES
