Why do kids eat?

Why do kids eat buggers? My five year old ate a full big, colorful bugger and I told her she would get sick. She is coughing and runny nose now. LOL

  • I guess for them - way easier than going to get a tissue and disposing of it! Ah, too much time wasted from playing!!

  • Who knows! My 1 year old thinks it's funny to stick her finger UP her nose when we ask her where her nose is, and my 7 year old is always digging for gold. When we catch the 7 year old, we always tell her to "pick a winner!" and she stops :)

  • I don't have a clue, maybe it tastes good? Tears are salty, so maybe boogers taste good? I am not going to try one to find out though, lol!
