“It gets the creative juices going. It’s not going to hang in a museum, you’re going to eat it anyway,” said Bill Wurtzel, author of Funny Food Art

Food became art on Sunday afternoon at Stepping Stones Museum for Children, as artist Bill Wurtzel demonstrated Funny Food Art for kids and their families.

Wurtzel said, “ All the ingredients I use to make these creative, mostly breakfasts, are healthy. They are all healthy ingredients and when I do workshops, I explain to the kids about mixing colors of foods. Because when you mix them, each one has its own healthy nutrients and vitamins and that makes a healthy breakfast.”

Wurtzel and his wife created Funny Food Art with creative and easy recipes for kids to create 365 days of the years

Wurtzel added, “By playing with the foods, when kids make it themselves, they eat it. So that’s a great way to get kids to try foods that they may not have eaten before and they are open to trying new things.”

Stepping Stones Director of Education says Wurtzel's art fits in with one of their initiatives

Hyla Crane, Director of Education at Stepping Stones Museum for Children said, “One of our major initiatives has been “Healthy Children, Healthy Communities” and the importance of nutrition is central to that, so our programming goes hand in hand in terms of complimenting our exhibits and other work we do here at the museum.”

Kids will be able to make their own food art at Stepping Stones on January 5th during a workshop with Wurtzel. For more information, visit For more about Funny Food Art, visit
