Dad of daughter with food allergies makes breakfast fun with toast art

A British father is making breakfast time just a little more fun for his daughter – who has severe food allergies – by creating incredible toast sculptures out of just two slices of bread.

Every morning, Adam Perry's nine-year-old girl eats white bread with a particular kind of sunflower oil.

"I started to feel really sorry for her that her breakfast was so boring everyday, the same old two slices of white toast," Perry told ABC news. "So I started playing with toast to get her excited about her breakfast again…"

Perry created an Instagram account for his two-slice creations, which has quickly amassed more than 5,000 followers.

Perry told ABC news that his wife Helen, and his two daughters (his eldest is 13), help him come up with the ideas for his toast sculptures.

"I've tried to keep it irreverent and fun," Perry said, "and a wide range of interests, not just the stuff I like (music and soccer), and sometimes I'll do something that's current or in the news, but more often than not it's just a reflection of what's going on in our little bubble."

And the toast masterpieces don't take long either. Perry noted that the creations require the time it takes for the kettle to boil. "Though," he added, "it must be said, our kettle is old and slow, so that's a big help!"

Of his toast art, Perry told ABC news, "It's just a bit of fun, but when people, comment and say it's brightened their day somehow it feels great, so I'm going to keep going and see where the toast takes me!"
