This Bread Cutter Encourages You To Play With Your Food

Getting a child to eat can be pretty difficult, and while many parents would argue against playing with your food, sometimes it helps to make a meal fun. Product designer Avihai Shurin has a finicky child of his own, and has dedicated his time to making meals more fun and creative for kids. Previously, he's developed special egg molds that look like clouds and faces.

Shurin teamed up with product maker Monkey Business to create a special bread slicer called Bready Made. It punches out the middle of a bread slice and breaks it into a variety of shapes which can then be arranged to form a variety of inventive animals and objects. The chef can also incorporate other foods to make the edible art even more elaborate. 

The endlessly arrangeable Bready Made shapes turn breakfast into a time for children to really flex their imaginative muscles while still being motivated to eat. If you're looking to invest in more exciting bread or just want to learn more, check out the campaign on Kickstarter

You Can Now Order Food Through Facebook

After a bit of controversy over its way of aggregating news feeds and some questionable content censoring policies, it’s nice to have Facebook roll out a feature everyone can agree on: allowing you to order food without leaving the social media site.

According to a press release, Facebook says that the company decided to begin offering food delivery options after realizing that many of its users come to the social media hub to rate and discuss local eateries. Rather than hop from Facebook to the restaurant or a delivery service, you’ll be able to stay within the app and select from a menu of food choices. Just click “Order Food” from the Explore menu on a desktop interface or under the “More” option on Android or iOS devices. There, you’ll be presented with options that will accept takeout or delivery orders, as well as businesses participating with services like Delivery.com or EatStreet.

If you need to sign up and create an account with Delivery.com or Jimmy John’s, for example, you can do that without leaving Facebook. The feature is expected to be available nationally, effective immediately.
