From the humble sandwich to creative party food, in this collection of recipes Mark Northeast, Founder of Funky Lunch, provides inspiring ideas for even the most fussy of eaters, some savoury and some sweet, but all perfect for hungry little girls and boys. Every parent knows how stressful meal times can be, young minds need inspiring and this is exactly what Fun Food sets out to do.
The book features many of the very best sandwich ideas, from simple farmyard creatures and cucumber crocodiles to favourite characters from the world of children's TV, as well as some fun and creative ideas to help get the little ones involved in choosing and making their own lunch.
Within these pages you'll find special creations guaranteed to set the right tone for any party and fill the tummies of all tiny party-goers. These are perfect recipes for parents who want to create memorable party food for their children, with ideas that are ideal for birthdays or themed parties and which also cover ideas for smaller crowds, whether it's an impromptu supper or a sleepover. From adorable jacket potato people to garden worm 'bangers and mash', and from scotch egg owls to ghoulish meringues, Fun Food is filled with achievable ideas for parents to encourage their children to eat, experiment and enjoy food.
Mark Northeast, father of two, set up his Funky Lunch website at the beginning of 2009, completely unaware that it would become a worldwide media sensation. After a year of global news coverage, tireless self-promotion and interviews, Mark has sandwiched his favourite creations into two award-winning books.
