Abstract

All children need a healthy breakfast to start the day. Unfortunately, however, many children skip breakfast because of picky eating habits. Poor eating habits can be changed by making eating fun for children. What is needed is a way to make breakfast entertaining as well as nutritional. The present invention is an improved toaster that includes a personalized toasting plate with handle. The toasting plate is comprised of a heat-resistant, non-conductive material such as a plastic-silica composite or fiber-reinforced plastic. In operation, a user slides the toasting plate along with a slice of bread into the toaster. After a pre-set toasting time, a user removes the bread, now toasted, to reveal the personalized toast slice. The toasting plate can be personalized to include a child's initials, a favorite animal, home state, or nearly any other outlined figure.
