Etoni Mama revealed to Bored Panda that she used to work for a big company for about 20 years, but she found it difficult to raise children while working full-time, so she got a qualification as a childcare worker. Now she is a part-time nursery teacher.
"I started making artsy food in order to interest my second daughter, who has an unbalanced diet, and that was the reason I started making such dishes."
Etoni Mama has mastered the art of kyaraben (character bento), which is the practice of decorating food to look like popular personas, animals, people and plants. In her creations, one can find Woody from Toy Story, Minions, Nemo and many more well-known and lovable characters.
To our surprise, Etoni Mama spends around one hour making and decorating one meal. This proves the incredible skills and experience Etoni has gained through the years preparing food for her children. The woman admitted that if she is not that busy with other activities she can spend more time improving the appearance of her meals.
Etoni finds inspiration just by looking at the ingredients. She comes up with a character for her meals depending on what kind of products she has. From the little mermaid to Mr. Potato Head from Toy Story, the woman can craft pretty much any character. However, the taste of the food still remains the most important thing.
Doesn't matter how incredible these meals look, Etoni shared that her children are already used to them. Sometimes they don't even spare some critique if they don't like something about the dishes.
Etoni revealed that her goal is to make kids eat a lot, even when they are grown-ups. We could only wonder what she will be preparing for her grandkids!
Etoni's love for this interesting craft has resulted in her not only sharing playful and delicious creations with her kids but also with other people. Right now, she has 180,000 followers on Instagram who cannot hide their appreciation and admiration of Etoni's skills.
The woman has also released a cooking book in which she shares her knowledge on how to make ordinary meals look playful and more appetizing. A real life-saver for other parents!
