No. The 5 second rule doesn’t apply.

August 16, 2011

Personally, the 5 second rule doesn’t apply to anything I eat.  If I drop it, it’s dead to me.

My daughters, on the other hand, subscribe to a completely different belief.  The closest description I can think of is, “Finders Keepers.”  Time never even enters the equation.



  1. Ha, welcome to our daughter’s eating belief as well. She eats anything and everything that falls on the floor. At least Rion throws stuff away, but Lily will even take it out of the garbage if she has to. It’s so disturbing. 🙂

    • Hi Kari!
      That’s pretty yucky. Our little one tossed the majority of her food off the high chair and onto the floor a few days ago. We called the dogs to clean it up. When they started to eat it she joined them. Talk about gross!

  2. Do really suppose that is true?

    • I think you’d REALLY have to like ice cream to use the 5 second rule. 🙂

  3. Nicely said & with excellent timing
