 h1. Dear readers,
 What did you have for breakfast today? How did it look? Lucky New Yorker Claire Wurtzel probably had breakfast prepared, as she does every day, by her husband, Bill, who ritually turns Claire's morning meal into an artistic rendering. The rest of us might enjoy our steel-cut oats just fine, but we could probably learn a trick or two about presentation from Bill and Claire's new book, Funny Food: 365 Fun, Healthy, Silly, Creative Breakfasts. 

 I am charmed with this photographic feast of eggs, bacon, oatmeal, waffles — all dolled up to look like, well, dolls and owls and fish … even the Mona Lisa. But I'm even more enthusiastic about Claire and Bill's efforts to fight childhood obesity. Check out the video on their website, which outlines the classes they teach in the New York public schools; we also put some of Bill Wurtzel's photos on Culinate.
