Laleh Mohmedi is a mum from Melbourne, Australia who has made dinner time a veggie enticing ART SHOW for her little ones.

And guess what, her fussy eaters are more than THRILLED to tuck into dinner.

Thankfully for us, she uploads her delicious and AH-MAZING meals to her Instagram Page Jacob’s Food Diaries.

Here are 12 times Laleh blew us away with her creations.

Forget the sweets come Halloween! This meal will CERTAINLY keep the kids spook-happy.
