Mom Makes Incredible Movie-Inspired Food Art for 3-Year-Old Son

When our kids get fussy with food, our go-to is a PB & J. And if desperate times call for desperate measures, maybe we’ll cut them into star shapes to spare us all the headache of a mealtime tantrum. But one mom who is putting our sandies to shame is Laleh Mohmedi.

Melbourne-based Mohmedi has been shaping exotic, healthy foods into her 3-year-old’s favorite characters to convince him to try new things. And after taking a glimpse at her work on Instagram, we can see why it’s working!

So what sparked this genius idea?

“Last May,” Mohmedi told ABC News, “I decided to turn Jacob’s spelt pancakes into a lion. He absolutely loved it and it progressed from there. Jacob tells me which character he would like for me to make, be it from a book, a movie or something that has caught his eye that day.”

Mohmedi, who has always been an advocate for healthy, organic eating for children, has convinced her son to try foods like dragon fruit, tofu, and even octopus. Can you imagine?!

The talented mom has recreated tons of iconic characters like the Beast, Pinocchio, Tigger, and Mickey Mouse, each more impressive than the last. We can’t imagine how much time she must put into these meals but clearly it is worth it because it has helped her earn a whopping 46.6K followers on Instagram.

Mohmedi told ABC, “Jacob has always been exposed to a variety of different foods. I honestly thought he would turn his nose up at the octopus but he actually helped me prepare it without any issues. I, on the other hand, was gagging — [the] tentacles were enormous!”

Pretty? Yes. Appetizing? Maybe not so much …

In addition to her movie character meals, Mohmedi occasionally creates tribute meals. Like when she commemorated the deaths of Prince, David Bowie, and Muhammad Ali.

And can we talk about this meal of Beauty and the Beast’s Cogsworth?! Never before has pancake and fruit made us hungry and emotional at the same time.

Now if you’re feeling ambitious, Mohmedi has provided instructions on how to make some of her famous food art on her blog, Jacob’s Food Diaries. But if yours doesn’t come out nearly as pretty, we certainly won’t judge!
