I saw this genius idea from Sycamore Stirrings on The Crafty Crow. I've been meaning to have a crack at it - but of course I needed to wait 'til Monday.
So today - we have Muffin Tin Monday.
My little dude ate everything. EVERYTHING. Except for two sections because he was just too full.
This is such a great idea for many reasons, toddlers get to feel independent and 'choose' what they eat. It looks enticing. It's less mundane than prepping a sandwich every day. Bit size treats are a bit more exciting than a regular sandwich. It's good to mix things up for everyone involved, visually as well as nutritionally.
I was surprised to watch in what order everything was devoured. And while there is chocolate starring in one little 'pot' - it wasn't the first thing to go. This is how lunch went down: popcorn, celery, seaweed crackers, mandarin, sausage, rice biscuits, pb sandwich and on and on it went.
Usually I have to keep reminding him to sit and eat his lunch - not today.
Muffin Tin Monday is going to be a regular occurence in our house. Oh yes, yes it is.
