Internet Falls in Love With Little Girl's Adorable Food Spelling: 'Apujoos'

A little girl's drawn-up menu has gone viral online for her adorable spelling, with the clip seen more than 23 million times.

The video was shared to TikTok by @soccergirlxoxo123, and reveals the youngster proudly showing off her creation.

"It's a menu," she declares, as SoccerGirlXoxo123 films the piece of paper, colored with green and pink pens.

The adult sounds a little apprehensive at first, before saying: "Oh I get it." On the front is the spelling "menyoow," for "menu."

She turns it over to browse the options, as she narrates the writing, saying: "We have 'menyoow,'" she says, while struggling to pronounce the next word, spelt "cande."

The little girl happily translates, confirming "candy," and as she points to the next word, spelt "apujoos" with a backwards "s," the artist helps out again, saying: "apple juice."

In the background SoccerGirlXoxo123 can be heard giggling to herself as she says "oh my god." Continuing to read the list she says: "We have 'wodar,'" as the kid says "yeah, water."

"Joos" features again, while hungry patrons can also order "grap," although the translation for that word seems to be lost.

I'm a kindergarten teacher and read that perfectly! She's a smart girl with a great sense of phonemic awareness!"

Christal Luster revealed: "My niece spells like this. Next level genius."

Kat laughed: "Sir, can I have the menyoow please?"

R&T admitted: "Not me being able to understand it before she clarified."

Lily joked: "But why does her spelling make sense."

While it's not clear how old the girl is, website KidsHealth sets out the various milestones children should be hitting at what age.

By age three, they should be able recognize the first letter of their name, by four, they should be able to write their name, and "develop awareness of syllables, use familiar letters to try writing words."

And by five, children need to be able to read simple words by themselves, and understand them in context.
