Muffin Tin Monday

I happened across a new idea during some aimless Internet browsing recently: muffin tin Mondays! When lunch time rolled around today, the girls were tempting me off a cliff of insanity with their overtired, day-after-a-busy-weekend dramatics. Fortunately, as I perused the cupboards for something healthy, quick, and kid-friendly, I remembered the muffin tin idea. Having nothing really exciting to throw on their plates, I hoped the novelty of a muffin tin would win them over and avoid the disapproval of agitated chicas. Most certainly, offering only a small portion of cheeze-its would have triggered a wild coup de tete (I know cheeze-its are horrible for your health, but they are such a treat!). Sure enough, they were impressed! Starting at the top right and working clockwise, we consumed apple chunks, cheddar cheese, cheeze-its, more apples, avocado chunks, and leftover corn and bean salad. This may become a weekly tradition at our house! You can participate in a weekly muffin tin carnival of sorts over at Her Cup Overfloweth.

This is how I feed our children for about the first year of solids...it really helps them learn to chose wisely!

I may have to re-introduce it into our weekly routine!
