Fun Food Family, based in Merton, near Watton, has created a line of frozen vegetables cut into the shape of the popular children's cartoon character's face.

The range includes 500g peas with shaped carrots, 500g carrots and 400g Pig potato faces.

It is already available in Heron Foods and freezer sections of B&M stores with the line going national on October 7 as it becomes available in Morrisons.

A post on B&M's social media advertising the new potato faces has received more than 5,000 shares and 41,000 comments from excited parents hoping the shapes will get their children eating their greens.

It is not just parents commenting as there have been many joking about the shapes making the perfect date meal.
