Creative Mom Makes Disney-Inspired Lunches In Order To Get Her Son To Eat Healthy
When you have kids, you'll find that one of the biggest issues you are confronted with is getting them to eat whatever it is you have laid down before them. Children are incredibly picky when it comes to food and it can become pretty draining for their parents who want nothing more than to sit down to a meal without any further hassle.
That's why some parents will try coming up with ways to ensure their kids have extra incentive to eat the food on their plate. For instance, there are these Food Cubby dividers that prevent different foods from touching each other on the plate - made for the pickiest of picky eaters.
But if you're in the same boat and are feeling particularly creative, you might want to give Laleh Mohemedi's ingenious technique a try. She creates lunches - inspired by animated kids' movies - in a bid to get her son excited about eating healthily.
Here are just a few examples of her work, taken from her Instagram page:
