If They Make It, They'll Eat It
Getting kids to eat their breakfast and try new healthy foods can be a joyful experience for them and you.
Work together to make funny, silly food creations that are healthy. Make sure you stock up on ingredients in the five food groups recommended by ChooseMyPlate.gov: Vegetables, Fruits, Protein, Grains, and Dairy. Having these nutritious foods in the kitchen are good alternatives to sweets and great for making creative images. Let your kids’ imagination be their guide.
You can also use the 365 images in our new book Funny Food as inspiration.
Here are a few simple steps to make a silly, healthy, delicious egg breakfast that kids love.

2. A scrambled egg and the bread has a head on its shoulders.
3. A cheese nose, berry ears, olive eyes, and a parsley-do, do the trick.
4. Strawberry lips say it all…fun, healthy and delicious!
