You've come a long way, baby koodie. ["Ravenous Girl," print available at Plan59, starting at $16]

Koodie is a new term making the rounds in the online food space. Coined by Phil Lempert, "Supermarket Guru":

koodie: -noun Slang. A kid keenly interested in food, especially eating, cooking, or watching reruns of Julia Child. A kid who has an ardent or refined interest in food; a mini-gourmet; usually trained by one or both parents to have an unusual, and sometimes fanatic, desire to eat unusual foods. Evolution from the now-defunct word foodie.

Can my eyes roll any harder?
