Fun Food Art For Kids

Our chief marketing mummy Gidania (and her little boy Zyah) put on her creative apron this past weekend at a creative food master class conducted by one of our favourite food artists Lee Samantha who has recently partnered Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts to transform dishes from the hotel’s new Kids Menu into beautiful yet edible works works of art. Inspired by her experience, we have put together a list of parents who have found a fun way to entice their kids to eat healthily. We have to admit, they all look incredibly delicious…



Samantha needs no introduction. The Malaysian mother and International Food artist has garnered plenty of attention for her food art skills. Her journey started in 2008, and she is a firm believer in using fresh, healthy ingredients with minimal wastage.
