This is the adorable moment a young baby girl battles with her desperate need to sleep in an effort to fulfill her desire to eat her snack.

The girl, who has not been identified, is strapped safely in the back of her family’s car with a pastry-type snack in her left hand.

During the 33-second video, the child can be seen greedily munching on the snack while her head, heavy with sleep rocks.

This is the adorable moment a baby girl tries to eat a snack while falling asleep 

Several times she is able to catch herself and continue with her unlikely feast. She manages to keep her eyes open long enough to retrieve a few crumbs and deposit them safely into her mouth. 

But after 30 seconds of effort, she finally closes her eyes and falls asleep.

Amazingly, despite being asleep, she still maintains a good grip on her snack and keeps it in position for when she wakes up. 

Despite her sterling effort, eventually the need for sleep outweighs her desire for food
