Here at ViralNova, we have a thing for people who make art out of food, probably because it combines two things we enjoy: cool-looking things and eating. We’ve covered some artists working with food before, and now we’re bringing you more. (You’re welcome.)
Stay-at-home mom Samantha Lee knew from firsthand experience that getting kids to eat can be tricky. She wanted to encourage her older daughter to eat independently while Lee tended to her younger child. To do this, she created little scenes out of food to make the meals more appealing.
Because it’s the Internet era, she began posting pictures of her creations online. The result was more than 300,000 Instagram followers, as well as features in various publications and advertising contracts. Lee’s creations feature pop culture icons and fictional characters, as well as scenery and landmarks.
The best result of all this hard work and fame? Lee’s daughters never have to be convinced to eat. She says they sometimes argue over which characters they get to eat. Maybe this is the trick for making your meals more exciting!
