Most parents know how hard it is to get children to eat their vegetables. One mom, however, found the perfect way to convince her three-year-old son to eat healthy meals. Not only that, she actually made a career out of it.
Laleh Mohmedi is a creative mom from Melbourne who used healthy food to create her son’s favorite cartoon characters, in order to convince him to try new things. Her first creation was a lion made from a pancake – her son loved it so much that happy mom continued this tradition.
“Every few days he would ask if I could make him a character from a movie, book or toy that he had seen. Jacob and I would get creative in the kitchen and discuss the ingredients that we were using and the benefits. For example, when he was 3, we would talk about how Kale was a superfood. He would ask why, and I would say ‘because superheroes love eating it’ – that was a winner for him!”
Mohmedi started sharing her works of art on Instagram and had such a positive response that she soon gained media attention from all over the world. A hobby that she started with her son turned into a full-time business and in the last two years Mohmedi worked with companies like Disney, Nickelodeon and Universal Pictures.
