The Cutest Eaters in the World

Who is the cutest eater of them all? Turns out (not so surprisingly) everyone thinks their own kid is. We asked you to send in photos of your young ones eating, cooking, and playing with their food, and you respond by the boatload, with more than 200 entries. Our esteemed panel of judges has narrowed it down to our 30 favorite eaters, and now it’s your turn to vote for the cutest. Check out all the photos then vote at the bottom of the post.

There has got to be a way to get in here. Zoe What cake? I haven’t seen any cake. Skylar

Polls are open until Friday, March 12. Oh, and this is an American Idol style “final” — since there are so many cuties, we’ll do a run-off with the two or three cutest eaters who get the most votes. You can vote once per day — cast your ballot after the jump!

    Nathan – you make me giggle!

  • Don March 12, 2010  

    It is very curious that one child, Brittany, does not have a single vote recorded. If someone is going to enter her in the contest, wouldn’t you think that they would at least VOTE for her – at least ONCE?

    Is this poor kid an orphan or being shunned or black-balled?

    I think the caption placed on her entry says it best: “What happened?”

  • Bethany March 12, 2010  

    Stanton Mommy is so very proud of you sugar muffin!!!

    What a farce. If you are going to have such a contest, make it legitimate and not subject this site’s denizens and their 200 plebian relatives. After all, MY child is the cutest here without a doubt, objectively speaking of course. Have a nice day.

  • Bea K. March 16, 2010  

    If Nicholas with his beautiful eyes and eating a lemon does not win…. this has to be one of those contests which should just be discontinued!!!!!! Honestly, LOOK at the picture!!!! Bea K. (I must say this is a completely unbiased opinion!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
