When I was little was always told to eat bread with my meat or I would get the worms . It wasnt untell a few year ago that I figured out that was because meat was 80 cent a pound and bread was 25 cent a loaf. P.S. I never got the worms

Whenever my mom told me I needed to finish dinner in order to have desert, I would argue with her. I used to say that I had multiple stomachs, just like a cow...one for breakfast, one for lunch, one for dinner, then another seperate one just for desert. It never worked though :/

I never liked and of my food to touch on my plate when I was young. I thought that it had to be eaten separately because it would fall into a slot inside my stomach that was set aside for that one food.

I used to believe that if I ate all my dinner the pattern on the dinner plate would change.

Then I found out that my mum told me this to make me eat all my tea!

I used to believe that our bodies r empty and when we eat food it goes first to our feet then to the legs and every time we eat food goes higher till it reachs the neck then we feel we want to go to w.c. to have an extra space 4 our next meal!!

i've always been quite an intelligent kid and my parents educated me well so i've no idea why even tho i knew about internal organs and stuff i still believed that there was a production line of mice who processed ur food from when u swallowed it sticking it all together and painting it brown until u eventually pooed it out!!! i guess i just decided the real explanation was too boring!!!

I used to think that when you ate food it would reconnect in ur stomach and dance around. And I'd imagine like hamburgers and corn on the cob dancing in my stomach.

wen i was littel i thought that wen u ate ur food went to ur feet and worked its way up, so wen my parents would ask how full i was i would point to the shin on my right leg, and theyd say well, eat to the same spot on ur other leg, and then u can have dessert.

My dad always told me that food gave me energy, so I always thought that when you ate, it went into your stomach, which was a giant tub that was being stirred up like what you see in the factories on TV. When the factory was done with the process, it would've made energy.

remember those little toys we hasd when we were young--the ones where yyou had a hollow box with different shapes cut into the side--and you were supposed to put the correct shaped toy into the matching hole? like the pyramid would go into the triangular hole...well, i think you get the point...any ways, when i was young, about 3-5 years old, i thought that your throught was the same way, like if you ate an apple, it wouild fall through the circular hole in your throught,and if you ate a slice of pizza, it would fall through the triangular shaped hole.

You know when you're eating or drinking somthing sometimes it doesn't go down right and you start to cough? People always would say to me "It went down the wrong tube." So I used to believe that people had 3 tubes. One for food, one for drinks, and one for breathing. So like when I was eating somthing and I started to cough, I would just assume it went down the drink tube.

When I was younger, I believed that when you ate food, it would all gather in your stomach until one day you were too full to eat anymore. I started to eat less and less, afraid I would explode if I ate too much. It never occured to me that when you pooped or peed that was the food leaving my body. I always thought they were just things humans had to do.

I believed that there were many tiny men in your stomach who each were assigned a specific food group, as well as a wheebarrow and shovel. When you would eat the man that was incharge of that food would scoop it up and take it to where you would poop...this was the digesting process

I thought that there were two hippos, a husband and wife, that lived in my tummy, and they stirred up all the food i would put in there, and eat it.

When I was little I thought there were little seats in my stomach like at the airport and I wasn't full untill all the food sat down

I also thought if I ate seeds a tree would grow in my stomach.

I used to believe that when you ate, your food just sort of stacked up in your stomach like a giant sandwich, and once that stack reached your throat you would become a grown-up.

I used to believe that if you get too fat, you will explode. One time I saw a fat person throw up, so I ran away.

When I was younger, I thought that everything had feelings. Of course you're not supposed to hurt anyone's feelings. So, when I was eating my food I would literally sit there and cry because I thought I was killing my food and hurting it's family's feelings.
