One-year-old Emery had her world opened up to the wonders of ketchup recently and the happy dance she did to celebrate has naturally gone viral.
It's amazing how quickly children can become set in their ways. Breaking from a routine or switching channels when their favorite show is on can cause a meltdown if you're not careful. They're like little old men. However, above all else, the hardest thing to do is getting them to break from the foods they like in order to try something new.
We vividly remember a time in our lives when all we wanted to eat was pizza and hamburgers. We would rarely willingly venture from those staples, even if it was for something equally unhealthy. As you grow older, your pallet naturally develops and you like more and more foods, slowly realizing that your parents were right all along when they told you broccoli is good for you.
Little Emery is currently on her own culinary journey. While enjoying some fries at a fast food joint recently, the one-year-old was faced with a new food. Ketchup. While filming her reaction, Emery's dad wafted a little pot of the red stuff in front of her, attempting to coax his little one to dip in one of her fries and give it a try.
Emery was naturally quite skeptical, and why wouldn't she be? It was something she had never seen before that she was now faced with tasting. She braved the dip eventually and as you can see from the video above, it did not disappoint. Emery enjoyed the new food so much that she did a little happy dance after tasting it for the first time. We can definitely relate.
We're not the only ones who have been taken with Emery's ketchup-fuelled happy dance. Since Emery's dad posted the clip to the family's Instagram page two weeks ago it has been viewed almost 670,000 times. That doesn't include the number of views it has accrued when shared on various other sites too. Emery has become a viral hit, and we hope this new found fame turns into an internet series that revolves around her trying a litany of different condiments. If it does, we look forward to her work with BBQ sauce.
