When Felicia and Madelyn were younger I began making muffin tin meals and participating in a weekly meme to share them with others. They looked forward to them so much and when Stella was old enough to join in the fun, muffin tin meals quickly became her favorite way to eat anything and everything! They helped me to get my kids to try new foods and got us over the "I'm not eating vegetables" phase that Madelyn went through.
It's been so long since we have done one. In fact, there is no longer a link-up for Muffin Tin Monday. :( But, Stella has started asking for one, so today I surprised her with a muffin tin lunch! It's nothing fancy, but you would never have guessed that by her squeals of excitement. I think we'll be doing them a lot more and I am sure when the big girls get home from school, they will be begging for one too.
She had popcorn, yogurt, cucumbers, apples, a frog shaped sandwich, and ranch dip.
It's amazing how such simple things make the little ones happy!
