NEWS COPY – WITH PICTURES – By Susie Beever

An eager dad has found the ultimate way of getting his children to eat breakfast – by creating toast JENGA.

Dad-of-two Wayne Stephenson, 41, stacks his soldiers like wooden bricks used in the popular game to get his daughters Kesinee, three, and one-year-old Elania to eat the most important meal of the day.

Wayne said the morning meal has turned from a nightmare into the most popular game in the house since he had the brainwave to stack the toast into a collapsable tower.

The web designer said: “Breakfast was just getting pretty repetitive and boring so I decided to spice it up a little.

“I began cutting up the toast into soldiers and making it a free for all in the middle of the table, but then I had the idea of having a bit of fun with it.

“I cut it into quarters then into three before putting it on the plate.

“I arrange the sizes and alternate them to make a sort of Jenga tower - they absolutely love it. We have peanut butter, plain and Marmite.

“Since we’ve started playing Jenga with it the girls have been eating more toast. It sets them up properly for the rest of the day.

“I tried it a few times before getting it right – there’s a bit of a knack to the way you place the slices. You have to keep rotating it in a certain way to make way for the crusts.”

The family from Osmotherley, North Yorks, now can’t wait to rise and shine for toast each morning.

Wayne, who lives with full-time mom Sarah, 41, added: “Kesinee was really good at it – I didn’t think she would manage to get a slice out but she achieved it with ease.

“Elania on the other hand was not as good, but she is only one.

“Needless to say she toppled it first time. The kids loved it and they ate all of their toast. “I might patent it!”

The father of the two youngsters said: “I think it’s really important for families to eat together. We’re quite good at all having our meals as a family, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

“The only downside is I’m sick to death of toast now! My family can’t get enough of toast Jenga.”
