Stock Photos Of Kids Eating Is The Cutest (And Most Unrealistic) Thing You'll See Today (PHOTOS)

Kids aren't exactly known for being great eaters -- in fact, they tend to be some of the pickiest, messiest, and loudest people to share mealtime with.

But with a little stock photo magic, anything and everything is possible. There's no denying that these photos of kids eating are absolutely adorable -- but they're also wildly unrealistic. Toddlers eating ice cream without any drips? Kids embracing piles of fruit? We're calling these stock photos' bluff.

  • 1 Carrots

    Yeah guys, this is realistic. Kids aren't often seen chomping on raw, fresh-picked carrots -- let alone ones that aren't even peeled.
  • 2 Pizza

    First of all, this pizza looks microwaved or maybe fake altogether. Second of all, this pose is completely creepy and has never once occurred in real life.
  • 3 Corn

    When was the last time you saw anyone smile this big while eating corn on the cob? Or better yet, not have kernels in their teeth?
  • 4 Ice Cream
    Shutterstock
    NO DRIPS. NO MESS. NO STAINS. NO ICE CREAM ALL OVER THEIR FACES.
  • 5 Tomatoes

    Just your average fresh-off-the-vine hilarious tomato.
  • 6 Burgers

    'Okay, so cover your mouth with the burger and then open your eyes reaaaaally wide. Yeah, that looks great! So natural, not murderous at all.'
  • 7 Grilled Vegetables

    Just FYI, the stock caption of this is 'cute positive boy with fork and knife,' so apparently he has a really good attitude about this meal.
  • 8 Fruits

    We'll call this one 'fruit binge after day camp.'
  • 9 Watermelon

    This mini watermelon whisperer knows all the secrets.
  • 10 Strawberries

    This kid's face looks alarming clean for strawberry eating. We're calling BS.
