FOOD FOOD FOOD!
The key to almost everybody’s heart except the kiddos – Well, depending on their mood, feels, wants, if it’s green, blah blah.. Will they just eat veggies already!? My kiddo is super picky but I soooo know that if I school myself on how to make amazing creations like the brilliant super mama of @JACOBSFOODDIARIES then I have a really reeeeally good chance in getting my boy to eat his greens!
May 2015, Laleh Mohmedi turned her son Jacob’s spelt pancakes into a lion- he absolutely loved it and Jacob’s Food Diaries was born! Seriously, check out Laleh’s instagram – fall in love and feel hungry, like I did. We chat to to sweet mama about three of my favourite things… KIDS, FOOD & JAPAN!
We all want our kids to eat more veggies! Please tell us, has creating these works of art changed your sons perception of trying new foods and veggies from the get go?
Luckily Jacob has always been a great eater. I like to get him involved in the creation process as we like to talk about the ingredients we are using and the benefits of the ingredients.
We are huge fans of your Instagram – WOW, Your work is amazing! How has the power of social changed Jacobs Food Adventures in the past year? Your favourite highlight of this year so far?
Thank you 🙂 Yes definitely- Instagram is a beast! When I first started posting the plates on Instagram it was purely to inspire other mothers to make meal times fun. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that it would turn into a career. My favourite highlight of the year would have to have been collaborating with Jetstar to visit the food art capital Tokyo, Japan. That was such an amazing experience especially for Jacob.
I can’t pick a favourite, you are brilliant! I would say Johnny from Sing and Carl from UP are most definitely up there and look sooo delicious! What has been your tastiest creation? And your Hardest creation?
Educating our kids on healthy eating, good and super foods is something every parent should do. Do you agree and feel this process is just as important when creating fun meals for the kids?
Everything looks way too good to eat! Do you ensure each ingredient you plate up for a character taste amazing together? Is there anything Jacob didn’t eat until you added a touch of your creations?
Prep time! Timing is of essence for every mama! How much planning goes into each design? Do you often create with everyday ingredients in your fridge?
Japan! Our favourite place for inspiration! More recently you were in Japan on an amazing adventure with your fam! Please tell us, 5 of the top places and attractions to visit with kids!
And the best and exciting places to eat that are family friendly? We would love to hear about your favourite food adventure!
Did you get a chance to shop at any kids clothing boutiques or with any local brands? Would love to hear your favourites 🙂
We have been religiously following your blog for recipes and we love it so much! Will you be conducting any classes soon or online tutorials soon?
Jacob is super styling! We loved seeing him wear Doo Wop along his food adventures with you! Thank you! What are yours and jacobs favourtite Doo Wop pieces for this season?
We love everything about DooWop from the craziness to the bright colours! I favourite would have to be the bubble t shirt!
