June 12th, 2020

Who doesn’t love a good internet challenge? One of the latest social media trends is downright adorable, as it involves two very sweet things – toddlers and sugary snacks!

Here’s how it works. Parents everywhere are putting their little ones’ patience to the test by setting a yummy treat in front of their child, telling them to wait to eat it (until they return), then walking away.

The challenge is, can the boy or girl resist the urge to take a nibble? A hidden camera is set up to capture the cute and funny results!

Not all participants have been able to pass the Toddler Challenge… But that’s okay!

Win or lose, it’s impossible not to smile watching these kids and their comical reactions.

How do you think siblings would do when tempted during the viral candy challenge?

Taylor Cherry from Ohio is the mom of two precious toddlers that are approximately a year apart in age. One day, she set her little ones up at the table and hit record.

In the video, she gives them each a bowl of colorful chocolates and says,

“Here’s your candy, but you can’t eat it yet, okay? Mommy has to go potty really quick and I’m gonna be right back.”

After Taylor leaves the real challenge begins.

The siblings look at their candy dishes with cherub faces, but it’s two-year-old Corbin who seems tempted right away. Fortunately, he’s got his big sis Annabel watching out for him!

Like a little mom, she scoots the candy dish away. You go, girl!

It’s gonna take more than that.

The boy quickly takes his bowl back and stares at the candy. That’s when big sis steps in again and says, “No, after mommy goes potty.”

Corbin then states what probably all the youngsters think during the challenge, “But I want some…” I hear ya, kid.

Can’t hold on…much…longer.

Surely Annabel would give anything for one of the yummy candies, but Corbin seems the closest to giving in. He even licks his lips and says, “Mmm.”

Amazingly though, neither touches the treats! Instead, they both look closely at their bowls practicing an unbelievable amount of patience.

On Facebook one person wrote:

“This is so cracking me up, this was so tempting but they did soooo good❤️”

In the end, the sibling pair passes the Toddler Challenge – probably thanks to big sis’ watchful eye!

Taylor responded to a comment on Facebook saying,

“Annabel–yes, she’s my rule follower. Corbin would have gone in as soon as I left the room if she wasn’t stopping him hahaha”
