I don’t like food that’s too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I’d buy a painting. (Andy Rooney)
Well, Andy – if that’s the case, maybe these seriously groovy plates by Boguslaw Sliwinski are not for you?
Polish designer Boguslaw Sliwinski creates clever designs that can encourage children to eat almost anything on their plates, even something as boring as brussels sprouts.
Being a parent himself, he understands the whole exercise of persuading a child to eat healthy food, so he created these designs so that children get to legitimately play with their food. Adults, too…
“Every parent knows what a nightmare of feeding. Telling a child: do not play with your food, just eat. That is why I created these plates. In spite of the principles used by mothers around the world, that food should not be played with. Let the child be the captain, who does not want to the ship to sink but safely reached the port. Or let the child be a truck driver and arrange for delivery and unloading a little salad so that it could can order another load when the child has finished.” says Sliwinski.
Here’s a taste of what he has on offer…
Boguslaw Sliwinski is a multi-faceted kinda’ guy – he also designs accessories, carpets and lighting. You can check out his site here.
Fantastic way for the children to clean up their plates. 🙂
Brilliant concept – yes?
Such a simple idea, but so clever!
Best quote ever!! Andy Rooney nailed it, J – but the playing pays off here yes, where it should – with great ART! Too funny 🙂
And you – the queen of fab’ quotes. What a compliment!
I thought so, too! Thanks for stopping by.
I love this little plate series that you’ve got going! I wish I knew about these when I was looking for gifts for my pregnant friends!
I hear you. Clever concept, aren’t they?
Zac – I reckon you wouldn’t even notice the pictures if there was food on the plate!
wow! I wish I had a few of these plates growing up. Syders, do you remember those kid plates that were sectioned off into areas for different foods? That’s as creative as my plates got 😉
I know – and the veggies were the WORST part!
What a great idea, they would certainly get kids more interested in food. I like the Parachute one.
These would be great for a fancy restaurant to have a reason to give you next to nothing on your plate for an inordinate amount of money ( god I am sounding like my father!) 😉
It happens to the best of us, BCD! There are times when I say things to the teenager and I frighten myself with my Mother’s words coming out of my mouth…
What a great idea – art with a practical application. I want these for my girls – how could they resist eating their vegetables now!
Exactly, C! Cool, huh?
Great post – love this idea! Though I have to say, that brussels sprouts plate is frightening. Eeeeek! 🙂
Sparks – I don’t want to freak you out, but I LOVE brussels sprouts! Does that mean I’m no longer your blog buddy?
Definitely does not mean that, my friend – just as long as you don’t expect me to eat them too! 🙂
Oh no – I’ll happily scoff ’em all!
These are brilliant!
Happy you like ’em, LTPC!
