Jessica Woo Makes Such Fun Lunches For Her Kids — and the TikToks Are So Soothing!
If you're running out of lunch inspiration for your kids, don't worry: Jessica Woo creates TikTok videos with cute, balanced lunches that kids will love. She even explains how to cut fruits and veggies into different shapes, which can actually encourage your kids to eat them. Additionally, Jessica tops off each lunch with a cute, compassionate note that is sure to make a child feel important and loved. So wholesome!
Her videos don't only have great ideas — they're also incredibly soothing to watch. From Jessica's friendly tone to the perfectly cut shapes to the abundance of color in each lunch box, I could watch these videos for hours. I'm getting ASMR vibes from listening to her cut the fruits and veggies, and I'm loving every minute of it. For 15 of her TikToks showing themed lunches, including the baked feta pasta that's gone viral, Frozen's Olaf made out of rice, and more, keep reading.
Jessica made an edible Pikachu with yellow rice, bell peppers, and seaweed, then placed it on top of curry. Next, she cut some cheese stars to place beside Pikachu and added berry flowers in another container. How adorable!
Lunar New Year Lunch
To celebrate the Lunar New Year, Jessica made a meal with mandu, heart-shaped egg omelets wrapped in imitation crab, japchae noodles, and tanghulu. On the side, she added strawberries, grapes, and oranges with edible confetti stars.
Valentine's Day Lunch
For Valentine's Day, Jessica made her daughter's favorite lunch, composed of pizza hearts, her favorite candies, heart-shaped veggie chips, and strawberry hearts. I bet her daughter felt so loved!
Baked Feta Pasta Lunch
Who says you can't have breakfast for lunch? For this meal, Jessica added mini pancakes, bacon, slices of green grapes, blackberries, and Goldfish, and topped it off with adorable animal picks.
Wagyu Bento Box Lunch
First, Jessica cooked some wagyu beef, placing rice underneath and an egg on top. For the sides, she added berry kebabs on colored food picks.
For this lunch, Jessica added rice, teriyaki chicken wings, strawberry flowers, apple stars, berries, cinnamon letter cookies spelling out "vote," and a yogurt drink. I love how she talks about elections with her kids even when they're young!
Rainbow Lunch Based on Trolls: TrollsTopia
Jessica started by making a salad with lettuce, cucumber slices, radishes, sprouts, and a cherry tomato. Next, she made shirataki noodles with soy sauce, sesame oil, and sugar, topped with okra. For the fruit section, she put berries and grapes on heart picks and added some Trolls fruit gummies.
For a Korean lunch, Jessica grilled mackerel and added steamed rice with quinoa. For the sides, she put strawberry pandas, seaweed, stir-fried anchovies, radish, kimchi, mandu, and soy sauce in her child's lunch box.
Jessica then added broccoli as Christmas trees, various veggies as ornaments, spam snowflakes, and Korean braised potatoes. Lastly, she added pomegranates, kumquats, cookies, and yogurt-covered pretzels. (And I have to ask: is it just me, or does staring at the rice version of Olaf make you feel calm because of how realistic it looks?)
Vegan Fall Lunch
In Jessica's vegan fall meal, she added leaf-shaped pasta with marinara sauce, and kombucha squash chunks with music food picks. She finished the meal with pomegranate seeds and GoMacro bars. Looking at those muted fall colors makes me feel so relaxed!
Jessica started this meal with strawberries dipped in white chocolate and green-colored chocolate, then decorated them to look like bloody sheets and Frankenstein, respectively. Next, she added hard-boiled eggs with seaweed to make ghosts, then she pan-fried hot dogs and added coconut chips as the nails in the hot-dog fingers with ketchup blood.
Calling all Slytherins! For this fun lunch, Jessica stuck to a green theme. She added peas to steamed rice and sliced up a chicken breast. She added kiwi flowers, an "S" cookie, and green gummy worms.
Taco Tuesday Lunch
Tuesdays are better with tacos! Jessica made tacos and stuck a pick through them to help them stay together. Lastly, she made plum flowers and poured in corn chips and Pikachu gummies as sides.
Among Us Lunch
Based on the Among Us game her kids love, Jessica made pancakes shaped like the characters. She then cut cucumber flowers and added baby carrots, s'mores Goldfish, and a Babybel cheese. I want to eat this lunch!
