My daughter just asked me: "Mom? What do fairies eat?" Well I have no idea, but I figured there are a lot of people who love fairies, and who study them.. who know way more than I do about them. Maybe you can tell me? :) She's only 4 1/2, btw.

Fairies eat nuts, blossom, berries and honey. Does your little girl know that fairies wash their faces in the morning dew collected in an acorn cup because it keeps them beautiful? She sound gorgeous,what a sweety! what's btw?

"btw" is short for "by the way". sorry :D i was being lazy. LOL she likes your answer, although she did giggle and say it was very silly. (however, i bet when i'm not looking, she'd probably go find an acorn cup and try to collect morning dew in it! LOL)

Now I had to look it up but what I found was that "Fairies bake small barley grain cakes and like to eat stalks of heather, milk of deer and goats, and a variety of root plants." look under Saturday May 11th http://www.myth.com/mythhtmlsite/suzas_journal/suzasuniquejournal.html And just incase she wants to ask you anything else about fairies you might find this site useful http://faeriefae.50megs.com/fairy_trivia.htm
