When I was young, I thought when a food was "spicey hot" you could blow on it to make it not "hot. For example, when I chewed Big Red gum, I would take it out of my mouth and blow on it because I thought that would make it "cool" down. Silly me!
When I was little, my grandpa told me you are what you eat. I used to eat so many peanut butter sandwiches! I used to believe that I would actually turn into a jar of peanut butter! I was so little, I didn't even bother wondering why adults weren't food!
Well, this isn't about me but my little brother. We had a dog and he would shed all the time so there'd be strands of hair everywhere. I told my brother that if he accidentally swallow a strand of dog hair, he would grow fur too. And then I said that it was already too late for him and I pointed out that there were fur on him already(it was actually his arm hair/peach fuzz). He started panicking and I was cracking up.
My mum would always talk about the dangers of eating raw meat for fear of tapeworms, and said that if you had one, you needed to put a bowl of soup up to your mouth and the tapeworm would come out. I believed this for quite some time, until I learnt that tapeworms live in your intestines, not your stomach :P
I used to believe that my stomach had a tiny mouth inside of it that would help chew up my food. So some days I would swallow food whole and hope that the tiny mouth in my stomach enjoyed eating as much as I did.
When I was a tot- I thought that when I swallowed food, there were lots of little elf type men chopping it up into smaller pieces as it went down my throat and into my stomach.
when i was about 5 my nan told me that "my intestines were talking to eachother" whenever my tummy rumbled and i imagined little round black things sitting around a coffee table having a conference in an office. hahaa also i used to look at wallpaper and see weird faces - i was trully a deranged child.
When I was little my mom always said that you are what you eat. So, I was afraid that of I ate something, I would turn into that!
When I was little and wouldn't eat my mom always told me she used to have a brother named Joey that wouldn't eat either and he got so skinny that a strong gust of wind blew him away and they never saw him again. I believed it..
I used to believe that "utensils" were underwear!
I used to believe that if i swallowed some Play-Doh and made a wish, my wish would come true.
My mom used to tell me that bread crust made you whistle just so i would eat it.
The phrase "down the wrong pipe", ie, swallowing the wrong way, led me to believe that I had a whole range of pipes inside me, one for each of the different things I ate. So I would say, "Oh no, my peas went down the apple juice pipe!", etc. I used to wonder how they could all fit, I needed so many of them...
If you eat a banana peal you can fly!!!!!
I used to think that when you ate something, it would just stack up inside your stomach. I had this mental picture of all these foods stacking up inside my stomach and once they would reach the top it would start coming up out of your mouth.
I believed that ham was mouse meat, because it was pink and my dad told me so.

I used to believe their were people in my tummy that yelled at me to eat that was the growling sound me mom told me this to get me to eat they are called " tummy guys"
I used to believe that whenever you accidentally swallowed food without chewing it, there was a little mouse-trap looking thing living in your stomach that chewed it for you!
I used to believe that when you ate, the food just built up in your body and you died when you got all filled up. I was terrified of eating too much because I didn't want to fill up too fast and die.
