Beau Coffron is a San Francisco dad who got Internet famous for the crazy elaborate lunches he makes for his two kids.
Beau is married and has a full-time job, but still manages to find time to make his kids an elaborate bento lunch once a week. Even though he has no formal experience in art, he was inspired when one of his kids was starting kindergarten and he saw that other parents made cool lunches.
Beau started blogging about his experience on his website, Lunchbox Dad, and the site has blown up over the past few years. He's published articles on parenting for a bunch of notable publications and speaks at parenting conferences across the U.S. He even landed a sponsorship with Whole Foods. He usually bases the lunches off of the TV shows/movies his kids are watching, and uses an array of different healthy ingredients to realize his artistic visions.
They're so well-made that I would feel bad eating one. It'd be like taking a bite of a chocolate bunny and knowing that you've forever ruined what used to be a fine sculpture. Some of Lunchbox Dad's lunches also contain "edible modeling dough," which sounds suspicious. But hats off to you, Beau — better that than feeding your kids whatever plastic concoctions other kids are eating. Now all you have to do is get on Instagram and brag about it. Oh wait, nevermind.
