a muffin tin lunch
We’ve been trying out muffin tin lunches lately, and I’ve noticed that the desire to eat healthier foods comes much easier to toddlers if you can find a fun way to serve it (which I’m happy to do some of the time!). The example below wasn’t just for our toddler, though, both Joe and I joined Sam in eating our muffin tin clean.
This time, we filled our tins with craisins, walnuts, apples, peanut butter for dipping, carrot sticks, ranch dressing for dipping, green peas, garden fresh cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, blueberries, hummus, and veggie chips.
My sister-in-law, Melinda, and nephew, Colin, will be visiting us from Texas soon, so I’ve decided to prepare lots of easy muffin tin fillers for the entire week so that we can just quickly grab snacks and make lunch for the boys without having to recreate the wheel five times a day. I think they are going to love it!
Have any fun or creative ideas to help little ones try new foods? Please share!
