In stores today is “Funny Food 365 Fun, Healthy, Silly, Creative, Breakfasts,” by New York couple, Bill & Claire Wurtzel. He’s a former ad exec, she’s a long time children’s educator and together they are grandparent dynamic duo on a mission to get kids eating eating healthy at home–and at school.
Their Funny Food Workshops have been wildly successful in NYC, with kids at a recent Lincoln Center event gleefully singing along to the “Funny Food Song” before darting home to make their own Funny Food plates.
“If kids make it, they’ll eat it,” say the Wurtzels about the secret to getting kids to enjoy a healthy breakfast. “Plus, you can’t make a mistake, ’cause you’re going to eat it anyway!”
