Today the Department of Awesome Parenting pays a visit to the Netherlands, where a Friesland-based father named Jurgen Steenwelle playfully decorates the bananas that he packs in his four and five-year-old daughters’ school lunches. Sometimes the girls’ mother writes sweet messages on their lunch fruit, so Jurgen decided to distinguish himself by instead transforming the bananas with drawings. He says the subject of each piece is determined by the shape and colour of the banana and he has now illustrated over 40 luncheon nanners.

“In the beginning, my daughter left her bananas still proudly to her teacher to see. But while the teacher was impressed, the kids found it to be ‘normal’ after a while. They have become used to it, I’m afraid. ’
