Fun Grasshopper


I was cutting an egg and the shape just reminded me of some wings. From there it was a small jump to a fun food grasshopper!


– Boiled egg

– Mushrooms (toast would be good too)

– Tomato

– Spinach for antennae and ground

– I used cottage cheese for ends of antennae and eyes (a little egg white or other cheese would be perfect too)


1. Cut the egg in half then make a triangle indent.

Grasshopper - 1 egg (1 of 1)

2. Add some mushrooms to make the body.

Grasshopper - 2 mushrooms (1 of 1)

3. Then I gave him a giant, cartoonish head from tomato.

Grasshopper - 3 head (1 of 1)

4. And some arms and legs from more mushroom.

Grasshopper - 4 arms & legs (1 of 1)

5. Before cutting some spinach antennae, with cottage cheese ends.

6. I made him a little face from cottage cheese and sliced mushroom.

7. Then some ground from spinach.

8. A grasshoppery start to the day!

Fun Wheatbrick Nest

  Wheatbrick Nest

I was absent mindedly reading the outside of the wheatbrick box as I was putting it away and there were suggestions as to how to serve. One of them was adding bananas and my mind raced from there.

This fun food, breakfast nest has got to be one of the simplest ever!

– 2 Wheatbricks

– 1 banana


1. I sliced the wheatbrick and then cut into smaller bits to build the outside of the nest. All the crumble went in the centre.
