Hungry Toddler Searches For Milk In Department Store’s Bra Section.

When you’re out and about and getting hungry, it’s time to stop whatever you’re doing and locate some lunch.

This is true for just about anyone, but when you’re only 18 months old, lunchtime is even more important! When little Eve Jackson of Halesowen, West Midfield, England, was out shopping with her family, she found herself a bit peckish and decided to take matters into her own tiny hands. Now, she’s going viral thanks to her adorably misdirected sense of lunchtime urgency.

Eve’s mom Vicky was out shopping with her three kids and her husband Sean. The family was preparing for a trip to Turkey, so they were walking through the Primark department store in Birmingham, gathering items for their holiday…

That’s when Eve started letting her mom know that she was getting ready for lunch.


Vicky started to lead Eve towards the store’s exit, thinking she’d nurse her daughter somewhere private while the rest of the family finished their shopping. But before Mom could reach the door, Eve decided to find some lunch on her own.

Spotting the lingerie department, the toddler charged off towards a wall of bras.

“Eve was entranced by them,” Vicky explained. “There were rows and rows of these bras that she must have thought they would have boobs in them.”


“It was quite sharp of her to see the bras and think ‘I’m hungry and that’s where milk comes from,” Vicky continued. “She was going through them all and looking behind them and shouting ‘milk’. It was so funny.”’

As Vicky giggled behind her camera, she asked her daughter what she was doing. “Milk!” Eve responded, growing increasingly agitated when none of the bras produced the lunch she was hoping for.


“She’d got it into her head that she wanted milk there and then!” Vicky laughed. “I couldn’t believe it when she started looking through the cups. This went on for over a minute so I thought I’m going to film it because it’s really cute.”

Although Eve is mostly-weaned and eats solid foods, she still nurses before bed. Her mom says she’s got a big, inquisitive personality and knows how to get what she wants, so she wasn’t surprised when her daughter made a beeline straight for what would make her happiest at that moment!


What a sweetheart! Too bad the lingerie department was such a disappointment for little Eve, but we’re sure she got her lunch soon after this video was taken. Hang in there, Eve! We know what hunger can do to a person.
