Like most three-year old’s, my daughter accidentally drops food onto the floor. A friend suggested I introduce the three-second rule. Providing I pick the food up within three seconds, and give it a quick blow, I could safely assume it’s not contaminated and safe for my daughter to eat. Personally, I don’t think it’s hygienic.
Our pet spaniel watches my daughter at meal times, patiently waiting for the tiniest morsel to hit the floor. I don’t see the point of having a three-second rule when we already have a two-second dog!
