A dad captured the moment his three-year-old daughter was found surrounded by 18 empty yoghurt pots after she devoured the lot. She was left alone for just 10 minutes while he did some gardening. Good effort.
Arron Whysall, 27, came in from the garden on Saturday afternoon to find his little girl Olivia Whysall grinning and smothered in yoghurt with 18 empty pots of Petit Filous on the table in front of her.
In utter disbelief, the dad-of-two asked Olivia if she'd eaten all the yoghurts, only for the youngster to 'proudly' reply 'yes' - while still holding her spoon as if to say 'give me more'.
Air conditioning engineer Arron was so stunned by his 'mischievous' daughter's appetite for the fromage frais, he couldn't even muster the words to tell her off.
After wiping all the yoghurt off his little one's face, Arron decided to take a snap as proof of Olivia's incredible feat.
In the hilarious photo, which quickly went viral on social media with 10,000 shares, Olivia looks incredibly pleased with herself as she poses with the remnants of her dairy binge.
Arron, of Nottingham, said: "When I found Olivia with all 18 yoghurts, I asked her, 'have you eaten all of those?' and she quite proudly said 'yes'.
"She was quite pleased with herself about it. I just thought 'fair enough'. I couldn't even tell her off for it because it was just too funny. I was more overwhelmed than anything.
"I couldn't believe it. I shouted my partner down and she said, 'there's no way she has eaten all of them'. But I told her, 'I think she has because she's just told me she has'. It really made us laugh. She obviously really enjoys those yoghurts."
Aaron continued: "They aren't massive pots but just the way she'd got them out the fridge, opened and ate them all, then was sat there still with the spoon in her hand as if to say 'give me more' was so funny.
"I had to wet wipe her face as she was covered in it. Then I thought, 'why haven't I taken a photo of this?' I put it on Snapchat at first but my friends told me it needed to go on Facebook and it's gone mad. I'm not a big user of Facebook so I wasn't expecting it at all."
As his fiancée Billie Hardie, 26, was doing her hair, and their kids were busy 'doing their own thing', Arron decided to take the opportunity to fix the fencing in their back garden.
The dad kept popping in and out of the house to check on Olivia who was watching television in the kitchen and her brother Oscar, six, who was on his PlayStation in the living room.
When his son emerged to tell him Olivia was eating 'a yoghurt', Arron told Oscar not to worry as he knew Olivia could manage to open and eat the Petits Filous on her own.
But when Arron went into the kitchen just 10 minutes later to make sure Olivia hadn't made a mess, the last thing he expected was to discover the youngster had eaten every single yoghurt in the fridge.
Mum-of-two Billie is a self-employed childminder and buys the dairy snacks in bulk to feed her own kids and the children she looks after.
However, her daughter's fromage frais frenzy meant Billie had to go back out on Sunday to buy more yoghurts that are now being stored on the top shelf - beyond Olivia's reach.
Olivia's parents were worried the excessive dairy intake might upset Olivia's tummy, but apparently the little girl was her 'normal self' and still managed to polish off her dinner.
Arron said: "I don't think Oscar realised Olivia was going to eat all the yoghurts. He just saw her eating one and thought, 'maybe she shouldn't be doing that' so came to tell me.
"I told him, 'that's fine, don't worry about it'. I wasn't worried as I know she can manage eating a yoghurt on her own. As long as she wasn't pouring it on the floor, it seemed fine. I went in about 10 minutes later to make sure she hadn't made a mess and there she was.
"I thought maybe she would have eaten one or two, but for her to sit there and eat the whole lot, I didn't think she had it in her. She does love her snacks. She doesn't really eat loads at dinner or tea time, but if you offer her a yoghurt or fruit, she'll always find room for it somewhere.
"We did have to pre-warn her grandparents that Olivia had eaten 18 yoghurts and asked them to keep an eye on her but she was fine. She was her normal self and ate all her tea, we couldn't believe it.
"She's such a little character. She keeps us busy, put it that way. If there's mischief to get up to, Olivia will be the first one there."
