Getting kids to eat food that's good for them is never easy, but what if those Brussels sprouts actually looked like solid gold nuggets? That's the thinking behind Esslack, an edible food paint from Germany. You simply spray it onto whatever chow you want add some bling to, and it suddenly looks like a gilded table decoration. Of course you'll probably want an equally fancy table to complete the look.
Available in both silver and gold, this looks like a great idea if you have fussy kids, even though the effect might not work more than once.
