Muffin Tin Monday-Party Style

Yesterday we attended a party to celebrate my niece's graduation from high school. Before we went I asked the girls if they would like to take their muffin tins along. My thought was, they usually just "eat on the run" at parties, grabbing snacks as they play. When they have a muffin tin meal, they almost always finish the whole thing, so I was hoping they would eat a little more "good food" and a little less junk. They loved the idea!

Here's Felicia filling her muffin tin:
She had a pretty good variety of food! Lots of veggies!
Madelyn, on the other hand, choose only macaroni and cheese, a pickled egg, and a pickle. No veggies! Although, she did eat it all! It really is funny how completely different the girls are!

  11. LOVE IT! We use ice cube trays and I used it with my early eaters...I have two girls that are grazers and the ice cube trays were easy to take in and out of the fridge to avoid me giving the girls pretzle stix all day long.

    But I never thought of taking the trays (or muffin tins) somewhere else with me! It's a great idea! Often, at a pot luck or a party, my girls MIGHT eat....or they might just play...or I don't know what they've eaten...or I make them a plate that doesn't get touched. It's a great idea!!!
