It wouldn’t be unheard of to hear me screaming in a panic ‘Possum, stop! Don’t eat that dead fly!”. The truth is that to anyone over the age of about 5 years old understands the sheer thought of eating a dead fly wouldn’t be highly appealing. Mainly because we already know much (or enough) about dead flies and why they are on the ‘do not eat’ list. For babies they are still creating that list and discovering much about the world we live in.
Now obviously I’m not for babies eating dead flies or anything remotely unsafe, but I am for them exploring and using their mouths to learn.
