While the country's top chefs and nutrition advocates continue on their crusade to fight childhood obesity, one couple has made it their mission to make the battle fun.
New Yorkers, Bill and Claire Wurtzel have published a book of breakfast recipes entitled Funny Food: 365 Fun, Healthy, Silly, Creative Breakfasts, that turns what's on the plate into playful and artistic arrangements.
The idea behind the 'funny food' is to inspire children to enjoy meals that not only look good and taste good, but are also packed full of nutritional value to will kick start a healthy day.
But don't let the whimsical title fool you; these are no amateurish works of art.
For each section of the book, that covers eggs, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal and bagels, the Wurtzel's design elaborate pictures of animals, nature and family scenes.
Among them, a man on a tractor, a woman bathing in a bowl of oatmeal and a couple of owls in a nest.
And of course a plethora of funny faces appear throughout the book made from pieces of banana, cut up toast, berries and peanut butter among other kid-friendly ingredients.
Also known as Mr & Mrs Funny Food, Bill and Claire Wurtzel have been illustrating their plates with edible creations for years.
Claire Wurzel likens her husband's talent for seeing the unexpected in food and giving it a life of its own to the work of Michelangelo.
Indeed Mr Wurtzel, an award winning advertising executive and part time jazz musician is a gifted creative but he confesses: 'My inspiration has always been making Claire smile.'
Until now, making his wife of 50 years laugh had been only a hobby and a way to express his artistic impulses in a more lighthearted way.
In fact, though Claire has always eaten carefully, and regularly counts Weight Watchers calories, her husband survived on a diet of high sugar, processed foods until he realised how appetising her fruit and vegetables looked.
He said it now takes him 'under five-minutes' to create the average egg dish.
'Most of them are easy for anyone to do,' he claimed.
With the launch of Funny Food, the couple hope to send a message to parents that healthy food doesn't need to be hidden and children need not be tricked into eating well.
'They hurried to eat their vegetables before the "monster or lion" was going to come and eat the chicken people and the broccoli trees.'
The couple also lead workshops in Manhattan for parents and children curious to learn the art of 'funny food' and healthy eating.
