Offbeat Video

By Katy Gill


A toddler got a nasty surprise when he took a sip of lemon juice after rummaging for snacks.

Natalie Leask, 32, from Ipswich, Suffolk started filming her two-year-old son Oliver as soon as he picked up a carton of lemon juice.

Oliver’s hilarious reaction to the bitter juice shows him closing his eyes and wincing at the taste.

Natalie said: “Oliver was going through his cupboard where his snacks are kept and discovered the lemon juice.

“I tried to tell him that it’s not very nice, however I had already learnt that some things have to be learnt for yourself.

“He insisted on drinking the lemon juice. He had tried it before hence why I had the video at the ready but he had never reacted quite like this.

“This is certainly in keeping with his personality. He is a strong willed, determined and very clever little boy and always has been.

“He knew from a young age where his healthy snacks were kept and as soon as he could walk he would try to help himself. Even managing to open the child lock to get to them.

“After drinking the juice and the video ending he then went for another sip, such a funny boy, takes a little while to learn the lesson.

“When I sent it to close family no friends they said it really made them laugh and cheered some of them up. It still makes us laugh every time we see it.”
