Is it teething time for your little one?


We’ve come across many crafty ideas to get kids to eat their vegetables but we’ve never seen one so... well, crafty!


Laleh Mohmedi from Australia is using her artistic skills in an effort to get her kids to get their greens in.


Laleh struggled getting her three-year-old son Jacob to eat his fruit and vegetables until she tried transforming his plate into a piece of art.



Using fresh fruit and veg, Laleh creates famous children’s characters right on her son’s dinner plate.


This mum revealed to ABC News how the whole idea came from a stack of pancakes.


“Last May, I decided to turn Jacob’s spelt pancakes into a lion. He absolutely loved it and it progressed from there."




“I have always been a strong advocate in healthy organic eating for children. 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.”




Posting her creations on her Instagram page, this mum’s creations have now earned her nearly 47,000 followers.




“Jacob has always been exposed to a variety of different foods. The only creations that Jacob does not eat are the ones that are made just for art/tribute.”


We’ll have to try this trick ourselves.



SHARE this mum's genius idea.
