Four-year-old girl snacks on cement and sand

A four-year-old girl named Jessica Knight snacks on pieces of carpet, cement and sand due to an eating disorder named pica.

Jessica Knight suffers from an eating disorder named pica which causes her to develop an appetite for unusual substances and her mother Kelly has revealed doctors refuse to help her until turns six-years-old.

She told the Daily Star newspaper: “Doctors said she likes it because she likes the texture. But it’s always confused me because sponge, stones and sand all have completely different textures … She hides cement stones and sand in her pocket and eats it discreetly because she knows it’s not normal.”

The concerned mum added: “We’ve been told they can’t help her until she is six and has reached the appropriate cognitive development.”

  1. Indeed singleness has never killed anyone. Even our Lord Jesus was single. People should stop stereotyping singleness coz it’s a great opportunity to advance yourself and do a lot of things. The stereotyping and singlephobia is what is leading many women into marrying the wrong men. 

  2. Watch out! tell tell signs if you think it is …then it must be it, if you cant be happy now you wont any other time in future

  3. wooi!!! its as if i told u the story of my life…its really sad to have such a man as a husband..well said, i guess wen u get pregnant at an early age u loose focus n oversee ol the flaws..let me say its not the best of experience… 

  4. I agree with the author that singleness has never killed anyone and please please don’t end up with the wrong man. But ladies, and gentlemen don’t miss out on the opportunity of sharing your life with someone special. companionship is one of those things hard to put a price on but does wonders in balancing if not improving the quality of life that you live. Allow the right man or woman to show you

  5. people have hope that with the ring on your finger he’s gonna change……….wrong,well maybe for a while but you’ll be singing the old tune when the spell has lost its power.

  6. I’m single and waiting on my man not Mr Perfect not Broke-az, Po-az, Lyin-az, Cheating-az, Dumb-az, Drunk-az,
    Cheap-az, Lockedup-az, Goodfornothing-az, Lazy-az, and especially his
    third cousin Beatinyo-az.
