#578: Happier meals

Children seem to develop a taste for less than healthy food partly because of the visually exciting packaging in which it is often served them.

Today’s invention is a pre-printed cardboard roll of highly-coloured, comic-like images -containing puzzles, links to interesting websites, competitions, factoids, stories, games etc. This material would be age-indexed so that one could buy a roll designed specifically for 8-10 year-olds for example.

The rolls would embody serrations to allow the pressing out of sections which could then be folded into food containers. In this way, fruit and other healthier edibles might be supplied to youngsters in a wide variety of attractive, exciting wrappers.

This certainly saves on running the dishwasher and, using edibles dyes and cardboard, the containers can themselves be eaten.
