This is how you get your kids to eat lunch and dinner

October 17, 2013

If you have a few hours to spare every day, and want lunchbox fare to make your kid the most popular one at school, then you could always do what Malaysian mom Samantha Lee does – make beautiful food art. Or you could just look at pics with a dropped jaw.

Not since Ida Frosk have I seen such beautiful food art, and it’s no surprise this mom of two has more than 312 000 Instagram followers, as well as articles on,Daily Mail and Huffington Post

According to her, you don’t need pricey gadgets and tools – Samantha says she cuts up rice, bread, vegetables and fruits with ordinary around-the-house items like scissors and knives.

According to MyModernMet, her interest in food started in 2008. “I started my very first Bento making in December 2008, when I was heavily pregnant with my second daughter,” she states on her blog.

“It was to let my elder daughter to eat independently after the arrival of her younger sister. I was very lucky and blessed that my creations never failed to impress my elder daughter and it made her looked forward to the next meal. Now, she has her little sister fighting over which character they should get during mealtime. It makes meal time extremely fun.”

Lee has no professional culinary training and describes herself as an “ordinary stay at home mom”.
