12 times this mum made a fussy toddler’s dream come true

Laleh Mohmedi is a mum from Melbourne who has made dinner time a veggie enticing ART SHOW for her little ones.

The mum-of-two makes delicious and healthy meals for her kiddies using basic everyday food staples (think mash potatoes, capsicum and flatbread) HOWEVER serves their meals as oh so incredible food sculptures, inspired by their favourite characters.

And guess what, her fussy eaters are more than THRILLED to tuck into dinner time.

Thankfully for us, she uploads her delicious and AH-MAZING meals to her Instagram Page Jacob’s Food Diaries.

Here are 12 times Laleh blew us away with her creations. 

Spongebob never looked so good. Maybe the next time you cook Healthy Mummy recipe Honey Soy Chicken Veggie Noodle Bowl you could try and create a similar piece!

Forget the sweets come Halloween! This meal will CERTAINLY keep the kids spook-happy.

Thank you to all the beautiful mummas who gave me advice on turning our little breeched cherub around. I had so many people suggestion Moxibustion- I had never heard of it until now so I booked in and had a treatment yesterday- another 10 days of lighting Moxi Sticks and fingers crossed she will turn ????
