Several months ago I discovered this blog. This mom comes up with themes like colors, Dr. Seuss, or other fun ideas and each Monday makes a meal served to her kiddos in a muffin tin. She says that her kids often eat MORE of their food and they have a lot of fun with the different ideas and presentation of the food. She also uses it as a way to easily introduce (or re-introduce) new foods.
I’ve always seen the pictures and thought it was so cute and fun. But, the reality of just getting food on the table AND getting Jaden to eat it is enough for me. But, lately I’ve realized that I give him a lot of things LIKE in these MTD (muffin tin dinners) cut up and in sections on his plate, maybe I could just make it a little more fun for a change.
It turns out, he LOVES it!
Here was our first attempt.Strawberries, carrot sticks, Muenster cheese sticks, kiwi, and rolled ham.
