The Food Artist Making Healthy Food Fun For Her Kids

Posted by Shopify API on

Heads up! This is an older article which has been moved over from our old blog. As a result, some of the styling on this page might be a little off.


Five years ago, Laleh Mohmedi decided to make healthy food a little more fun for her son by turning meals into artworks of his favourite fictional characters. Now a mother of two, Laleh has continued creating artworks entirely from organic produce and has attracted a huge following online.

What started as a hobby has since grown in popularity to the point where it has become Laleh’s full-time career. And with her fantastic food creations being seen by over a million people last year, we’d say it’s going pretty well.

All of her work is created from scratch using fresh ingredients and natural colouring. Check out the impeccable attention to detail in Laleh’s creations below!
