A 7-year-old girl's diet list has been circulating on the web recently, causing heartbreaking gasps and an outcry against our weight-obsessed culture. The handwriting is childish, but the sentiments it contains are those we like to think don't begin haunting children until later in life, though time and again, we're shown otherwise.
The note came from mom Amy Cheney who shared the "diyet" list with all of its misspellings at Mamamia. She said she found it in her daughter's room, amidst the Polly Pockets and friendship bracelets.
The note outlines foods the girl lets herself eat: "Appals, keewee, yoget" as well as exercises she needs to do: "pooshups, 16 star jumps 2 time a day, and rid my bike 3 times a day."
Again, this is from a 7-year-old girl.
