- A video of an Asian boy eating rice with no side dish went viral
- Many netizens were heartbroken to see the child looking content while eating rice only
- Social media users also slammed people who are too picky with their food
A heartbreaking video showing a very hungry Asian toddler eating rice on the floor without any side dish due to his family’s financial poverty has gone viral.
Aside from the fact that the boy is eating alone on the floor and without any other dish to accompany his white rice, one of the things that broke the heart of netizens is that the toddler seems to be content with what he has.
Many netizens commented that there are many spoiled kids today who refuse to eat their meals if the dish is not to their liking.
“Nalulungkot ako isipin na ang batang ito kanin lang okay na sa kanya habang yung ibang mga bata maarte sa pagkain,” a netizen said.
(It is sad to think that there are children who are too picky with their food while this kid is content with eating rice only.)
Several social media users also commented that the government officials should concentrate on alleviating poverty and feeding poor families. There are many Filipino families today who are not able to eat three full meals every day.
“Mahalaga na puksain ang droga at kriminalidad, pero mahalaga rin na pagtuunan ang kahirapan at kagutom na dinaranas ng maraming pamilya sa Pinas,” a social media user pointed out.
(It is important to eliminate drugs and criminality but it is also important to focus on poverty and hunger which are being experienced by many families in the Philippines.)
