Whoever said you shouldn't play with your food took eating way too seriously. Bill and Claire Wurtzel employ the opposite approach, encouraging kids and their families to make mealtime fun by creating plate art in which scrambled eggs become birds, waffles become the Eiffel Tower, and bananas become planes, giraffes and skateboarders.

In their second book, Funny Food Made Easy (Welcome Books, 2016), they expound on the inspirational breakfast art they made in Funny Food and add step-by-step photographs, nutrition tips and instructions on how to host a fun-food workshop for schoolchildren. And their plate art is no longer just for breakfast: Just wait till you see what they do with cheese.
