If there was an international yogurt eating contest, Olivia Whysall would be the champ

Sure, most kids love the sweetened dairy deliciousness that comes in every flavor from strawberry to chocolate, but one Nottingham, England, 3-year-old, like really, really loves yogurt. So much so that when she was left alone for only ten minutes, pint-sized Olivia Whysall polished off 18 cups of Yoplait’s Petits Filous yogurt in a single sitting.

“Have kids they said,” Olivia’s dad hilariously captioned a Facebook post of his adorable daughter sitting behind a table lined with 18 empty Yoplait containers of different flavors. “Let her alone for 10 minutes and she’s helped herself to a 18 pack of petits filous,” he wrote over the photo.

“I was in the garden for 10 minutes,” Olivia’s dad, Arron Whysall, told TODAY Parents. “When I came inside to check on her, I saw that she had helped herself to 18 yogurts.”

“She looked so proud of herself,” he continued. “I couldn’t tell her off.” While just the thought of consuming so much sugar in such a short period of time might be making you nauseous, apparently Olivia has a stomach of steel.

“She was totally fine afterwards,” Arron said. “No complaints. She didn’t get sick or anything.”

And no, this isn’t the first time Olivia has been up to no good when her parents weren’t looking.

“Olivia is very mischievous,” he dad continued. “She draws on the walls and gets into everything. You’ll come in the kitchen and she’s in the cupboards.”

Apparently, most parents can relate to this situation, because pretty much every comment on the viral post was a mom or dad all too familiar with the scenario.




One parent offered a genius solution to the problem of children getting into food — putting a lock on the refrigerator:


Okay, so maybe your kiddo doesn’t have a thing for yogurt, but most of us can relate to this on some level. Whether it is candy, fruit, cookies, chips, or even your makeup, there has probably been an incident (or if there hasn’t, there will be) where you leave your child unattended for a little while — for mine, it can sometimes be as brief as a single minute — and they have somehow managed to cause more destruction in that small increment of time than you could ever imagine. It’s basically a rite of passage of parenthood, after all. It doesn’t make us bad parents, it just makes us parents.

Next time your kid pulls an 18-yogurts-in-10-minutes kind of stunt, instead of getting mad at them, laugh a little bit, snap a photo, and share it on Facebook. Trust us, we will relate.
