WATCH: Armless baby teaches herself to eat using feet

/ 03:48 PM October 17, 2016

Leaving toddlers unattended with food usually ends up in a big mess.  One little girl, however, has become the darling of the internet after she was filmed feeding herself despite her disabilities.

Born without hands, the adorable toddler named Vasilina is seen in the video gripping a fork between her toes in an attempt to pick up food from a bowl.


Her food failed to reach her mouth on her first try, but the persistent youngster adjusted using her other foot and successfully took a bite of her meal by her lone self.


The girl’s mother,  Elmira Knutzen, shared the footage on her Facebook account with the caption: “For Vasilina’s fans.”

The comment section has since been flooded with positive responses, with netizens calling the baby “inspirational,” “amazing” and “genius.”

Her simple yet moving actions have also made people to lament about their own life and be grateful for what they have.

“May God bless you every step of your life. And people complain for the littlest things stop taken life for granted,” one user wrote.

As of this writing, the proud Russian mother’s post has been viewed by over 54 million users and has reached over a million shares.  Khristian Ibarrola/rga
