One dad, Bradley Williams, prevents his toddler from eating off the ground in a “clever” TikTok clip.
Williams’ one-year-old has a bad habit of finding everything on the floor and putting it in his mouth and tired of that, Williams had a brilliant idea.
In a viral video, Williams reveals how you can use this particular child’s product to “train” your toddler not to eat on the floor….The Puddle Jumper!
“Do you have children that eat things off the floor?” he asks.
In the background, his 1-year-old son can be seen shoving fistfuls of Cheerios into his mouth, which litter the kitchen floor.
“Well, I have the solution for you … ” Williams continues, before showing off a Puddle Jumper (a floatation aid) up to the camera.
Except, according to Williams, it has been rebranded in the Williams household has the “Snack Blocker.”
In the clip, Williams goes on to show how the pool aid can prevent kids from sticking random things in their mouths at home. And while it is a joke, you have to admit it works surprisingly well!
When chatting with Newsflare, Williams shared how he stumbled upon the idea.
“Sam’s grandmother gifted him the flotation device to prepare for the summer,” the dad revealed. “However, after Sam put it on, I realized that he couldn’t eat the snack he was trying to get to his mouth.
“Sam loves to eat and this is why I thought I could turn it into a funny video skit about keeping kids from eating off the floor,” he continued. Be sure to watch the full clip below!
