AS we’re sure all mums will agree, it’s hard enough finding meals that the whole family enjoy – but add a fussy eater into the mix and it’s downright impossible.

If your kids are going through an awkward food phase, then you might just want to take notes from this TikTok mum.

The mum-to-one from Essex, Sophie, uploaded the video to her TikTok account ‘sophier97x’.

The video shows a meal she made for her fussy child and it’s left lots of adults saying they want it too.

The meal consists of Iceland’s turkey dinosaurs, mash, peas AND baked beans.

But it’s not the ingredients that make this meal special, it’s the presentation.
Sophie has re-created a movie scene with the meal, with a mash volcano and the baked beans errupting like lava, as the dinosaurs stand around watching.

She plays the Jurassic Park soundtrack in the background as she pours the baked beans and it’s sent the internet crazy.

Sophie uploaded the video with the caption: “If only I spent this much effort with my own dinner.”

She said: “I tried to be a cool mum tonight lol.

“Fussy child ate it all.”

Clearly her dinner hack has impressed numerous people as it has racked up over 1.2 million views.

The video has 98.3k likes, over 3,000 comments and 2,554 shares.

One person said: “That’s sick I wish my mum did that.”

Another added: “Omg I want this.”

A third commented: “Very creative, children love surprises especially with food. Love your idea.”

However, although many adults were left with their mouths watering from the meal, it seems TikTok users were slightly divided over the meal.

Many were quick to comment on the ‘crime’ that the woman committed – putting beans with peas.


Another said: “Would’ve loved this as a kid! But…the peas and beans combo isn’t for me.”

A third added: “This was cool until you put the peas and beans together.”

Sophie responded: “To all the triggered people over mash and beans and peas and beans, my child enjoys it, that’s all that mattered.

“Don’t slate it until you try it.”
