Many parents around the world put tons of effort into creating healthy meals that look enticing to kids, but there’s one mom in Japan whose presentation game is particularly strong. Etoni Mama is a master of Kyaraben (character bento): the art of styling food to look like cartoon people and animals. Though she works with a variety of ingredients, Etoni is especially talented at turning fried eggs into all sorts of cute characters.

From Winnie-the-Pooh to Pikachu, Etoni can craft pretty much any character with fried eggs. Yellow yolks serve as the perfect faces and bodies, while other ingredients such nori (edible seaweed) are carefully arranged on top to represent the characters’ hair and facial features. Some meals even feature pieces of ham, cheese, and vegetables in order to complete the picture. No matter the design, each creative meal looks almost too cute to eat!

It’s clear to see just how passionate Etoni Mama is about her unusual craft. Along with sharing her eggstraordinary creations to her 100,000+ Instagram followers, she also released a cooking book to help other parents share creative meals with their kids. Check out some of her meals below and find more from her portfolio on Instagram.
