“FUNNY FOOD” Book Tells Kids “Play With Your Food!” and Makes Headlines from NY (Daily News) to LA (Weekly)!

Since it hit the stores in late March, Funny Food: 365 Fun, Healthy, Silly, Creative Breakfasts–the colorful new book by NYC authors Bill and Claire Wurtzel–has been making headlines with food and parenting editors across the country–and it’s easy to see why!

What’s not to love about a couple of grandparents whose mission to fight childhood obesity is built around the simple tenant: Play with your food? The Wurtzels have come up with a winning combination: arts & crafts, healthy ingredients, humor, fun, and more fun! Funny Food gets kids laughing, interacting, buzzing with ideas, and as Bill Wurtzel always says, “If kids make it, they’ll eat it!”

Funny Food is a little book with a big message: Make nutrition fun and kids will choose to eat healthy food over junk food every time. Kids, parents and educators who have witnessed the Wurtzel’s powerful Funny Food Workshops in schools across New York City agree.

Take a look at a few notable Funny Food press clips and quotes (see below) and to get more info on Funny Food and the Funny Food Workshops, please visit: www.funnyfood.us
