egg shaperIn light of our recent peanut butter alternatives
post, I’ve been really thinking about other ways to get protein into my
kids at lunchtime, whether it’s school mandated or not. They’re
hot-and-cold on hard-boiled eggs, but I’m wondering if this fun little
doodad I just spotted might give them a nudge in the right direction.

You just pop a freshly hard-boiled egg into the Japanese Egg Shaper,
let it cool in cold water for ten minutes, and suddenly you’ve turned a
boring old egg into a cute fish, car, heart or star. And as any parents
know, if
it’s shaped like a star–whatever it may be–your kids will probably eat
it. –Liz
