Convincing kids to eat healthy food isn’t an easy task, but Sarah Lescrauwaet-Beach found a creative way to get it done. She’s arranging fruits and veggies into edible food art, often inspired by our favorite Disney characters.
Lescrauwaet-Beach hails from Belgium and she fell in love with the diversity of different cuisines during her travels across Australia, Europe, and the US. She also wanted to help her kids develop a healthy relationship with food, and her Instagram page @edible_food_art_for_kids was born out of this idea.
“I found that I wanted a way to make fruit and vegetables fun and creative. What started as simple plates to give my children a smile soon became a creative way to unwind, bring my message to people around the world, and keep my kids coming back for more,” she told Bored Panda.
In addition to looking amazing, Lescrauwaet-Beach’s edible creations are as healthy as it gets. Fresh fruit, veggies, seeds, and nuts are her go-to ingredients, and she avoids using mashed potatoes, pasta, food dye, and artificial flavorings.
When it comes to inspiration, she finds it in the most unusual of places, but Disney movies are her clear favorite. She also enjoys paying homage to other animated classics through her work, from Pixar’s heartwarming movies to The Simpsons, Rugrats, and Garfield.
