A 10-year-old girl announced to her parents today she was hungry but couldn’t find anything to eat.
The daughter of Keith and Sandra Schmelt from Strath Heights arrived home yesterday from school pick up and stood for 15 minutes staring at a full pantry.
“We spend $150 on groceries for the three of us but she still can’t find anything to eat,” Mrs Schmelt said.
There were over 10 options including Milky Way’s, chips, biscuits, fresh fruit, Zooper Doopers and more, but she was still undecided.
After 30 minutes of standing in the pantry, Mr Schmelt decided to ‘close the shop’ to prepare for dinner. This was the perfect time to remind his daughter that other kids are starving overseas even though she has never left Australia.
Mr and Mrs Schmelt were left wondering if their daughter had secretly started a keto diet at school.
