Lots of parents struggle to make their kids eat their vegetables and healthy foods, instead of the flashy looking and easily accessible chocolates and all sorts of fast food snacks. Laleh Mohmedi took a creative approach to this and one day in May 2015 she decided to make her son’s spelt pancake into a lion. The kid loved it and that’s how this incredible project was borne, and of course she named it after her son, Jacob. Since then her Instagram account has gathered over 100K followers and went viral.
Jacob’s Food Diaries were featured on multiple websites and even traditional media like CBS, ABC, The Today Show, Ellen got interested and either featured them or invited them to the studio. Even Martha Stewart was intrigued by this project.
Laleh’s creativity, passion for healthy foods, and growing popularity has given her incredible opportunities. She’s been able to collaborate with such huge companies like Disney, Universal Pictures, Nickelodeon, 20th Century Fox and even the famous cook Jamie Oliver.
Eventually Jacob’s Food Diaries grew to become a platform for parents and children, where they can find cool healthy recipes and get inspired.
