Do you remember eating any odd things as a kid? Maybe bugs, dirt, or something else?

As a kid, I ate a lot of things people would consider weird. Among those were chalk, paper, the wood from a pencil, and my own shirts, at least of what I can recall. I was a pretty strange little kid in terms of what I would and wouldn't eat.

I ate pretty normally for a kid, but when I was younger I accidentally swallowed one of those little beady damage counters from the Pokemon Trading Card Game.


It was accidental, mind you.

When i was younger i ate all sort of weird crap. I used to eat paper, i remember getting told off for eating an eraser once and i was never allowed to eat on a beach because i was known to dip whatever it was i was eating into the sand x3

I used to chew on pencils, and sometimes I would still chew on straws or the caps of pens. I'm not quite sure why I do so; I guess it's just habit. I also use to put my thumb in my mouth and suck on it until like... the third grade. Thanks to my third grade teacher and the bet I made with my mom (if I quit sucking my thumb before she quit smoking I get a hamster. I obvious won) I eventually stopped, thank god. It's caused me to have weird teeth though, and thus braces.

I swallowed a marble once when I was like 7-8 :3 I thought I was going to die too xD My idea of things "going down the wrong pipe" was that the inside of your body was a series of pipes and that things that weren't food, would hit the outsides of the pipes and kill you >.<

(...I'm answering this thread while chewing on my tv remote, lol)

I was/still am notorious for eating things I shouldn't have, mostly by chewing the thing down to bits and then accidentally swallowing them, lol. Though I've mostly stopped that habit, it started a habit of me grinding my teeth at night, lol.

I've never really ate something weird as a kid. I was always quite clean and always ate the stuff that I should eat, and not eat stuff like grass lol.

I also hate it when people gnaw on pencils - its honestly really nasty and I'd never do that.

Sand, paint, playdoh I ate alot weird things as a child

No, nothing odd, seriously.

It's because I tried to lick some things that were inedible, and they always tasted gross, so I threw them away. That is still, for as long as I can remember.

I ate dog food and it tasted disgusting. (It was a dare btw) x__x I also ate random leafs and plants and mud and some other strange stuff too and they tasted reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally weird, especially mud. o.o

I've eaten glue before I think ¬_______¬

But that's about it.

I ate a leaf before and I think it was dead. And I also chew plastic until now. Does that count? xD

I used to eat paper and leafs before. But I don't think leafs really count because that's all I eat these days.

As a kid I used to suck on pennies because I liked the metallic taste and once or twice I swallowed one on accident. I also used to stick the ends of 9-volt batteries on my tongue to get that electric shock. Never swallowed a battery though, thankfully.

I remember eating paper and stickers when I was a kid... Sort of weird and it tasted plain...

September 16th, 2011, 3:26 PM
Boogers. But what kid didn't? When I got in first grade, I decided it was immature to eat boogers though. So I moved on to my hair. I also drank my own tears. Or well, I licked them off my face. So I was way ahead of Gaga drinking her tears tonight, cause I know you love me, baby.

I ate a gravel-covered donut that dropped on the ground. I don't know what I was thinking other than the fact that I was getting a free donut.

This thread has reminded me that I ate paper as a kid on occasion. I... kind of enjoyed the taste. ._.; Stopped when I was in middle school; a teacher of mine went on and on about how there were dangerous chemicals in that (along with chewing on pen caps). Scared me out of eating it again. XD

I never really ate anything that wasn't food, haha. Even when I was little I knew what the good stuff was, ahaa.

Paper, when I was a kid.. Yeah, I kinda... liked.... the taste.. lol. xD Thankfully, that habit's gone. :3 Oh, and I kinda sucked on ballpen ink coz the other ppls were doing it.. I swallowed ink by accident, and I never did it again. Also plastic, until I learned the dangerous chemicals there is n one small piece of plastic. o.o

Currently, I'm actually stopping myself from grabbing a coin and putting it in my mouth. -_-" Childish, I know. It's an odd habit of mine I'm trying to stop. :P

I ate a cactus when I was seven. Not fun.

I used to eat paper as a kid, I also drunk bubble bottles once or twice as a kid. I can't remember any other weird stuff I ate or drunk.

i used to put paper in my mouth then start chewing it and then spitting it out.lol
I also used to chew on juice box straws but sometimes i still do that <.<

September 19th, 2011, 10:47 AM
Yeah. When I was younger I use to eat Mud, Sand and even Ants at times; I ponder why no one told me not to do that...

September 19th, 2011, 2:33 PM
I used to eat mud, cat food, dirt, paper, straws, well... I don't even know how much crap I ate when I was a little kid. I ate everything, pretty much. I'm not even kidding. xD

I used to eat paper, and once I ate a leaf for a dare. I felt really sick afterwards though XD
I do chew on things a lot though so occasionally I'll end up chewing on something till it's in pieces, like bottle caps or straws, or the edge of those 3D glasses you get at the movies..

I was a "trashbin",if something was expired they sent me to eat it ^_^
I also ate paper to freak some people out ;P

September 21st, 2011, 9:26 AM
I don't remember eating anything weird, but I do remember sticking cheerios up my nose. >__> Does that count? XD

September 21st, 2011, 9:36 AM
When I was in elementary school we used to sneak cherry tomatoes out of the cafeteria and use them as toppings on salads made of grass. XD

And I also used to love eating clovers. I still kind of like the taste, but I don't like go out of my way to eat them like I did as a kid. Wouldn't spit it out if you put one in my mouth though.

My mum said I once ate chicken poop when I was a toddler o.O
