This is the hilarious moment a toddler really eats his words when making a “nom” sound when his mum asked him what noise a chicken does.

Adorable Mateo Sosa was sat learning words with his mother Mónica at home in Mixco, Guatemala, on February 10 when he made the delicious blunder.

First, Mónica asks her 16-month-old son what noise a dog makes, which he replies to inaudibly before she asks him what a cat does leading him to say ‘meow’.

Finally, she asks him what a chicken does to which Mateo puts his hands to his mouth and chomps down saying ‘nom’ before Mónica says not when we eat it, when its alive, to which he does the same eating motion.
