"I created a tag, hope everyone else will take a look at it.

Am I the only one who feel that this will become the greatest tag?"

The hashtag began after one parent noticed the similarity between the food and her child's arms.

"My second child’s bread, 100 days old."

The trend follows in the time-honored tradition of Japanese social media users comparing their children to food, whether that be rice balls or mochi.

"This tag is such a solace! I couldn’t help to post the photo from last year!"

Honestly, the best part of having a baby must be showing off how cute they are on social media.
