Tor­ture for tots at hunger games

WANT to learn about hu­man na­ture and what makes us tick? Then check out The Se­cret Life Of 4 Year olds (Chan­nel 4 Tues­days). This fas­ci­nat­ing se­ries in­tro­duced us to a new bunch of tiny tots who were filmed tak­ing on a se­ries of chal­lenges to help us un­der­stand how we de­velop emo­tional and so­cial skills.

When sen­si­ble Patsy, cute Harper and sweet-toothed Vin­nie had to dec­o­rate lol­lipops with melted choco­late and sprin­kles they looked de­lighted.

But the in­struc­tion not to eat them un­til all their class­mates had re­turned was tor­ture of the worst kind for two of the trio. It took a whole five sec­onds of soul-search­ing be­fore Vin­nie and Harper cracked. “We’ve eaten them. We were sooo hun­gry,” Vin­nie hap­pily con­fessed to their teacher on her re­turn.

They re­minded me of me at around 7pm on Day 1 of my new diet!
