These adorable cartoon food creations aren't just nice to look at but actually encourage healthy eating. By using favorite characters from well-known children's shows and movies, Samantha Lee excites her kids about eating vegetables.

Lee uses carrots as the hearts of love rising out of Minnie and Mickey Mouse and beans as the grassy ground that Wall-E the robot is driving along. She also turned cobs of corn into Minions as well as a veggie-filled omelette into a detailed Pikachu Pokemon, complete with ketchup for its cheeks, to join her past Hello Kitty and Pocahontas projects.

This mother doesn't just make these artistic cartoon food plates for her kids, but also as part of an effort to show other moms how they can make healthy eating more fun for their own children at home.
