Pick Your Nose and Eat It
You know you have all seen it and probably have all discouraged your own kid from doing
it — I know I have. This article in the Toronto Star discusses an interesting theory on why
kids pick their noses and then eat it.
What if this scientist is actually correct and there is a biological reason kids have this urge?
What if a good pick and snack after daycare helps fight off the colds that the other kids brought
with them that day? What if discouraging them from eating their boogers means they will get
sick and inevitably so will you? I don’t know…maybe it’s worth staying quiet about. I’d rather
avoid a cold and endure stares from strangers. You’ll have to decide for yourself.
