My name is Laleh and I am 35. I have a son Jacob (6) and a daughter Charlie (19 months old). In May 2015, I turned my son's spelt pancakes into a lion for a bit of fun and he loved it! 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!

I started posting our creations on my personal Facebook page and had such a positive response that I thought I would create an Instagram account to inspire other parents to get creative in the kitchen. 

Within a month our page went viral and gained media attention from all over the world with media coverage from Time Magazine, Huffington Post, The Today Show USA, The Today Show Australia, Sunrise, ABC TV, Disney Channel Australia, and shout outs from celebrities, such as Martha Stewart and Ashton Kutcher to name a few. Ellen DeGeneres has even shared an artwork that I made of her on her show!

Within the last two years, we have been lucky enough to work with some amazing companies including Disney, Nickelodeon, Universal Pictures, Barcelona FC, Jamie Oliver, 20th Century Fox to name a few. 

We would never in a million years have thought that our little kitchen creations would turn into a full-time business but we love every minute of it! 

We love to use fresh, healthy produce and no refined sugar or preservatives. All our creations are dyed using vegetables and natural powders such as activated charcoal. 

Check the other meals that I've shared on Bored Panda.

Wouldn't the oatmeal be all cold and gloppy by the time she finished?

That looks amazing! That's a lot of talent! But with those dishes that are supposed to be warm..wouldn't they be a tad cold once finished?

So you're feeding your kid a plate of dried chilis? I'm pretty sure this isn't "healthy" or normal.

This is possibly my favorite artistic creation. Your work is beautiful. As for "not for eating", people make demo cakes using foam forms. Nothing different about that in my eyes.
