America’s problem with portion size has sparked a strange new photo trend, one in which parents set their newborn babies alongside massive burritos on restaurant tabletops.

According to the U.K.’s Daily Mail, a Mexican restaurant in Seattle, Wash., is saying that any diners who take photos of their babies next to one of the restaurant's staggering Burrito Grande plates can eat for free. The only catch: The child must be less than one month old.

Gorditos has built its reputation around this $9 burrito that is, quite literally, the size of a newborn. Weighing in at a full four pounds of tortilla, meat, black beans, and rice, the Burrito Grande just might be the most popular item on the menu, one waiter told the Daily Mail.

Taking advantage of the publicity, the eatery has covered its walls with the unusual baby photos and posted many of them on its Facebook page.

Gorditos first opened in 1994 and has since expanded to two other locations in Seattle. According to the Daily Mail, some of the restaurant’s more dedicated diners are worried about all the attention the Burrito Grande is getting on Reddit.

“No! Don’t let the secret out!” one woman complained. “We don’t need any longer lines!” Baby-size burritos lead to unusual photos
... probably, but where do they get the big tortillas from?

Yes, and there have been days in my youth when I might could have eaten two.
