11 Insanely Cute Muslim babies on Instagram to Follow and Watch Them Eat
The halal foodie life starts from young...
Most people love babies. More and more babyjournals on Instagram are getting thousands, if not, millions of followers. But you know what’s better than a baby? A BABY THAT EATS GOOD FOOD. We’ve found some accounts that has gotten us salivating all over the place, like a baby. Here’s the countdown of the 10 foodie-licious babies on Instagram!
11. @kisah.ali – Muhammad Luth Ali
Muhammad Luth Ali, or affectionately known as Ali, is the son to a famous Malaysian couple. His dad is an actor ,Saharul Ridzwan, while his mum is a famous influencer-turned-businesswoman, Deena Amir. No wonder he’s got all the attention he will ever need in a lifetime. He’s one of the younger teething babies on this list so his family has just started feeding him proper food. Even though there’s not much photos of him eating on his feed, you can already tell what kind of food he’s into.
Creamy, cheesy pasta. Yum! And…
Whatever it is, as long as it doesn’t give him a tummy ache, we’ll be excited to see him eat.
10. @pouponnahyan – Nahyan Bilal Jeanpierre
Everyone’s so glad to see this charming local baby celebrity take to food so well! Nahyan is the Pan-Asian son of bubbly actor celebrity, Nadiah M. Din, and a photogenic French lad, Bilal Jeanpierre. He’s always making us smile but now we’ve got more reasons to smile as we watch him start to enjoy his wonderful Baby-led Weaning menu! Go go, Nahyan, eat like a champ!
Nadiah really knows what’s good…
What was @pouponnahyan breakfast today?;) and he finished it all! except few blueberries left and i ate it🤣 A lot of people asked me on DM “ When did u start Baby Led Weaning?” I started when Nahyan was 6 months old. From 5 months I started giving him puree and we stopped puree-ing at 6 months because i discovered BLW:) So yes, 6 months it is and it was not easy in at first, lots of gagging and I got super nervous and anxiety strikes. But it takes time and slowly Nahyan coped better with it🙏🏽Just make sure you are ALWAYS around during their feeding times.#babyledweaning #babyledweaningideas #blw #8months1week #pouponnahyan #breakfast
Did someone say chicken pumpkin balls?
9. @aairaameena – Aaira Ameena
Aaira is a cheeky little girl. Her photos are always so funny and enteraining to watch since she is so expressive. Not surprisingly, she’s also the daughter of another well-known Malaysian actor, Shukri Yahya, and an influencer mother , Tya Adnan. Looks like there’s a trend, ah guys?
We’re seriously impressed by her ability to use her utensils!
Here’s one of her trying durian for the first time.
Aaira knows how to keep her food safe from pests too!
8. @arifjiwaasyraf – Arif Jiwa Asyraf
This baby just won an award for the most happening baby by popular vote. The award? Si Cilik MeleTOP by Meletop, a popular talkshow in Malaysia usually hosted by Naelofar and Nabil Ahmad,) for his social media presence.
Since he’s the grandchild of Malaysian legendary singer Datuk Siti Nurhaliza and Datuk K, he’s famous by his own right. But other than that, Instagram users want to follow babies who are cute and boy is Arif a cutie. He’s got the best cheeks on the block and he really knows how to work his poses for the paparazzi! A serious moodlifter, this boy.
He’s mostly breastfed at the moment but we’ve seen some photos of him trying more solids. We’re excited to see him try more food in the future. With a family net worth that high, maybe when it’s time for him to wean off milk, he’ll be eating fine dining baby food every meal.
Watch out! He’s got a taste for Avocado Smoothies already…
Look at him! Even if he wasn’t eating, a foodie like me would be so excited because I just want to bite him! Ahhh!
7. @theyusufiskandar – Yusuf Iskandar
He barely learnt how to walk and he’s already got 4 million followers on his account and a reality show in his resume. Wow! His dad is a Malaysian actor (Hairul Azreen) while his mum is an ex-lawyer and founder of the Cakenis brand (Hanis Zalikha). With that amount of brain power and influencer potential, their family propelled themselves straight into money-stamping stardom! There are videos of him eating on his reality show, “My Little Heroes”, but we’ve taken what we could find on Instagram for now!
Mushroom Cream Pasta Date!
Another durian-loving toddler, we have been blessed twice today…
6. @aisymateen – Aisy Mateen
Son to a businessman (Fadzil Zahari) and famous television host (Yana Samsuddin) in Malaysia, Aisy Mateen never runs out of good food on his table. He’s one of the flighty babies who’s not that into the camera but we think this phase will pass. He just celebrated his 2nd birthday and we hope to see him grow to love the camera! Let’s see some of the good food he gets to enjoy…
Would you look at that?
Looks more like adult food.
Maybe, that’s why he’s stuffing himself and ignoring the camera!
Here’s one of him eating a chunk of salmon like a (baby) gentleman.
5. @adeenazulkifly16 – Adeena Zulkifly
She’s the 5th child of the family so she’s definitely used to being the apple of everyone’s eyes. Her mother is a long-time radio DJ and actress in Malaysia (Sharifah Shahira). Adeena is quickly becoming our favourite because she loves nibbling on anything she can get her hands on. Her down-to-earth Malay family just loves feeding her.
She’s sucking on a chicken foot. How endearing!
Her mum thought about doing this to her!
4. @affaneats – Muhammad Affan
We were so happy when we found this account. Affan is a Singaporean baby who is on a BLW (Baby-led Weaning) regime. Naturally, all his meals consist of healthy, colourful and delicious food. If you read some of the captions, you’re bound to start salivating too. Check out his profile for all the good food he eats!
“Dates pancake, eggs & Greek-style yoghurt” #blessed
Dates pancakes + greek style yogurt and eggs for Affan's Saturday breakfast. We've been using dates for Affan's food because we haven't been doing our groceries. 😅 Affan ate about 1 pancake and a little bit of eggs and started playing with his food. He doesn't seem to eat much when Mama's around – probably due to 24/7 access to Mama's milk! 😂😘 #MdAffanMdHelmi #Affansukamakan #BLWsg #BLW #Babyledweaning #babyledweaningsg Anyone tried making strawberry pancakes and have tips? 😊
His mum has also adjusted some adult recipes to fit his toothless needs e.g. boiling the vegetables to soften them
First time eating pasta! Verdict: macaroni is easier to eat than spaghetti. 😄 . We gave him both macaroni and spaghetti. He was so excited being served such an 'adult' food. . I see lots of improvement in him putting food inside his mouth, chewing them and finally swallowing them as he spits out big chunks of food much lesser these days. . Homemade pasta sauce recipe: Mashed/blended peeled tomatos Garlic Onion Bay leaves Capsicum (needs to be cooked longer/roasted to soften it, else it will be crunchy and difficult for my toothless baby to 'chew') I added spinach and minced beef hoping that he can consume some iron juices 😋 . #MdAffanMdHelmi #Affansukamakan #BLW #BLWsg #babyledweaningsg #Babyledweaning
3. @aydenosor – Ayden
Ayden is such a sassy baby that we had to give him a top spot. (If not, he might give us the side-eye). His whole profile is wholesome and entertaining, starting with his username (DINOSAUR PUN, YESSAH!). He’s got the personality, talent and food to be a potential Instagram star!
That keria, paired with the side-eye and a pinch of attitude.
Even drinking from a can, he looks like a star!
We can all relate to this. #donuts4lyfe
2. @malaquemahdaly’s babies – Umar Nael & Selma Malika
Umar, babyboss of Chulop, is the newest addition to the Syarif (former singer-actor-businessman) family. While the insta-baby feeding craze in Singapore started with his sister, he is catching up in age and learning to try proper food. Lucky for him, his insta-famous chef/baker mum (Malaque Mahdaly) is a veteran in the whole Baby-led Weaning process so he’ll be eating the best of the best recipes that his older sister, Selma Malika, got to try. We can’t wait for him to eat food full-time! Sometimes we’re just salivating at what Selma gets to eat. Malaque won’t you cook for us too!
Hurrah! He’s an avo-baby too!
#umarnael ‘s Baby Led Weaning essentials from @motherswork From my favourite high chair, bib and the silicon plate❤️ The @kushiesbaby waterproof bib with sleeves is a saviour. Im sure you mommies will love this one so much. His cute lil clothes are protected so thats a huge plus point for uma!! #mothersworksg
While Malaque was the one who was whipping all these delicious baby food and introducing them to the online Malay community, Selma was the face of the legendary meals. We could not get enough of her since she was a baby until now. She’s still a foodie at heart and loves eating good food even now that she’s in kindergarden.
Selma, you’re making us melt!
Who remembers the time her mum made gourmet salmon fishballs for her?
#selmameals on the go! She hates anything pureed these days. Made 'fishball' that consist of salmon,potato,carrots,caramelised onions,paprika,chopped chives,pepper, homemade breadcrumbs. Air fried. So yum! Abi and uma stole some while we had our kebabs just now! Edited: I also put in instant quinoa powder in the mix😋😋
When baby food looks better than your lunch…
What about when her mum made her fine-dining dinner for fun?
Dear #selmamalika you are so lucky that all my life I had an education in food and my whole career life was spent in kitchens. I will only give you the best and feed you well. I haven't been feeding her rice/rice cereals as main meals cos I had my fair share of research and knowledge that they are not really a great baby's first food. Therefore I gave her other sort of grains which are high in fibre and much much better in terms of the processing. Tonight, she ate fine dining just cos I miss #kitchenlife a lil too much . Airfried coconut oil cod on a bed of quinoamillet pumpkin kale pillaf spiced with a bit of cumin.Side note here: I have been introducing spices/ fresh herb to selma ever since she turned 6 months in hopes that she will not be picky with her food and of course to flavour the food itself. So far, she has no problems with it. Made salsa out of avocado sweeten by pink grapefruit and some orange to add a lil bit of acidity and coriander for freshness. Trust me, selma eats a lot but I have only been feeding her good stuff. As much as I can, I do spend on her more than myself. I do spend a lil bit more of my pocket money to get her organic food whenever it is possible. I'm in a quest to start my daughter's life healthy. Many asked/dm me what do i feed her until she becomes so fat. Some also think I might be overfeeding her. Truth is she is not really fat. Camera angle adds 10 pounds to babies too. She eats well, mostly fish,combi of veges and fruits(that are low in sugar eg. I dun give her lotsa bananas cos they are high in sugar,you can find other info on fruits from books and google too) Occasionally, she indulges in lean beef and chic breast and of course, Malaque's Milk all the time. I hope this will answer the many questions I get on what I feed her. I will finally let her taste naughty things when she is a bit older but we all know moderation is key so till then. #selmameals PS. Portion might look huge but really it is like 1 tablespoon of pillaf with half a fillet of cod and 1 teaspoon of salsa. I presented this way so she will be enticed with the colours. The presentation prolly last 30seconds 😂😂😭
Now, she’s all grown up and becoming picky about her food. We still love her.
I miss this!! Selma’s appetite is really weird lately, like she has begun to say yucks to vegetables although she will still eats some of them but she has been PICKY lately! I miss my baby all cheery with food! This is her just earlier last week when she wanted to follow how her abi ate with his hands! #selmameals #selmamalika

What colourful frozen cube stocks she has!
13th February 2017 was the date we started @anyameals with 90 followers on the first day and was open for business. We started out with cute little frozen fruit and vegetable cubes. But like our little toddler #AnyaArissaAiman, this little humble business has grown a little and evolved a lot more. . . But our vision remains the same—to educate parents and caregivers on the importance of nutrition while providing them a healthy, quick and simple everyday solution. Being parents ourselves, we have dedicated our time and effort to time taxing meals so you don’t have to. We understand that after a long day at work and with multiple children, all you want to do is to spend quality time with them instead of toiling in the kitchen. . . #AnyaMeals aim to be a solution so simple, even dads with zero experience in the kitchen can feed their little ones delicious home cooked meals. . . As we turn the big ONE this coming February, we would love for YOU, our dearest beloved beautiful awesome customers to be the first to see our brand new logo. . . Brand new @anyameals logo unveils on 13 JANUARY 2018. STAY TUNED.
We hope more mothers will continue to feed their children good food so that they will grow up happy and healthy! A big thank you for all the parents who have dedicated their time and effort to their child’s baby journals so that all us foodies can share the joy!
So…anyone feeling a baby fever coming?
