Watch These Moms Try Baby Food For The First Time

It’s a parents duty to taste every food that goes into their newborn’s body. Whether it’s breast milk or packaged baby food, you gotta know what your’e feeding your kid.

The folks over at Facts got a group of moms together to try a batch of different types of baby food for the first time. Baby food includes infant milk (breast milk substitute), baby puree, gourmet dinner cups, and baby desserts.

Now, we’ve watched Facts try dozens of foods from all over the world in the past few years. This, however, may be the least appetizing journey they’ve embarked upon.

Still, check out the video above. If there’s a takeaway from this, it’s that maybe you’ll appreciate your mother a little more seeing all the gross baby foods she had to try to make sure you could eat them.


NSFW Ads Graphically Depict Eating Junk Food During Pregnancy


The foods that pregnant women eat can definitely impact their unborn child in some way or another. While the most know to avoid are raw fish and alcohol, even junk food can have an adverse effect on a child.

Paim, a Brazilian agency created a series of graphic ads depicting this for the SPRS. Babies are shown suckling on breasts that have different kinds of foods drawn onto them. While the illustrations are amazingly detailed, the overall ad is incredibly haunting.

It boasts the header: “Your child is what you eat.”

Restaurant Scales Burritos Next to Babies, Gives New Meaning to ‘Food Baby’

baby burrito Gorditos

Ever wondered how ginormous burritos really are? Easy — just measure them with this new baby scale created by Gorditos, a “healthy Mexican food” joint in Seattle. An entire wall in the store is devoted to pictures of various customers’ babies sized up against some hefty, ripping-at-the-tortilla-seams burritos.

So, next time your friend groans and rubs her “food baby” after a gut-busting meal, you might want to take her seriously.


Burrito supposedly means “little donkey” in Spanish, so we’re curious if any restaurants compare their fare to actual baby donkeys. One can only dream . . .

DAW: Clever Baby Bib Turns Gross Messes Into Food Art

Baby Bib

Babies are smart cookies. It might seem like all they do is eat, sleep, poop and look cute (all of the above is true), but there’s so much more to little munchkins. The Goo Period Vincent Van Bib is here to expose that truth.

The concept is simple — you know how babies get super messy when they’re slobbering food all over themselves? Well, there’s hidden genius in said sloppy situation — most kiddos are actually just creating awesome works of goo art. The mashed-peas-meets-apple-juice-meets-cookie-crumbs combo makes for a beautiful bib painting, and such artistry is captured by a complimentary gold frame on this stylin’ tot accessory.

Even though the Vincent Van Bib might seem semi-gross, the huge upside is that it’s not necessarily only for babies. Seriously, who’s stopping you? It’s possible to make your own Goo Period piece on your lunch break for a small fee of $7 per bib. We say go for it.

Today I Learned: Yes, You Can Eat Your Own Poop


Even when we were infants, the idea of coprophagy (the consumption of feces, guys) was gross, but apparently some very high-minded journalists over at Gawker are still dying to know: is it or isn’t it safe to eat your own poop?

Luckily enough for them, science was ready with the answer. And luckily enough for all you latent Phils and Lils out there, the answer wasn’t pretty.

(It’s yes, by the way. Yes you can eat your own poopy-poop.)

The gist is that while urine is sterile and poop isn’t, both are perfectly safe to eat, because all the bacteria in poop is 100% yours.

“Those are the same bacteria that live in your gut and play many healthy roles in your body,” Daniel Pomp, a professor from the UNC School of Global Public Health, told Gizmodo, “so coprophagy is not necessarily unhealthy unless the poop originates from an unhealthy individual.”

Our natural aversion to eating poop, moreover, probably comes from the fact that most fecal matter repositories (sewers and toilets and things) aren’t usually filled with just our personal stool, but rather, mixed stools from a considerable range of other behinds – which are of course poisonous.

But if you were able to obtain a perfectly clean pile of poop, and were hankering for a warm, steamy fecal breakfast, science says eat away. Sure you may get a weird glance here and there, but other animals eat their own poop and there may be some nutritional value in there. Maybe. If you dig.

It’s something?

Epically Cute Meal Time [VIDEO]

To be honest, there is absolutely nothing newsworthy about this video (and to be even more honest-er, it’s only vaguely “food-related”). But once you finish this unbearably cute clip of twin baby girls dancing to their dad’s guitar, I promise you won’t even care.
