Muffin Tin Monday: a good thing

Muffin tin Monday was another HUGE success! I'm loving being creative with food - and lunch on top of it {I usually struggle in the lunch department}.

And Noah is loving it, too! He ate everything plus extra meat {apparently Jamie isn't the only one in this house who loves pepperettes} and a Clementine orange.

Top row: cheerios, banana on a stick {genius idea that I stole from another lunch who stole it from someone else - genius. Pure genius.}, cashews {which he loved and kept saying, "mmm, crunchy."}.
Bottom: yogurt, pumpkin shaped sandwich {cream cheese with banana & strawberry jam - raisins for eyes, small piece of licorice for mouth}, pepperettes.

Also, Noah will eat pretty much anything if it's in a fun shape. It's a mind-blowing discovery and I'm loving it because A) now he'll eat the food I give him - or at worst, at least give it a try and B) I can try out things like liverwurst {that's right. I am giving my kids liverwurst and they are actually liking it! Hey, I survived, so can they.} and he'll eat it right up! Amazing!

So, Muffin Tin Monday will continue to happen for as long as I can remember to do it! It's really a win-win. I get to be creative and Noah actually eats a good lunch!

  1. shoot.
    all these posts just show me how picky i am.
    i TOO will eat most things if they're in fun shapes/colours/or presented well.

  2. Um... this is too cute Vanessa. You're such a great mom!

  3. Awesome idea Vanessa, i'll have to try it someday. I'm not so good in the lunch dept. either.
    Dan came up with the brilliant idea to smother Elijah's chili with ketchup the other night so he'd eat it.. that's as creative as we've been so far!

  4. I've heard of this before and totally need to give it a try! I must go find a 6 muffin tin.

  5. Wow, this is a fabulous idea!! Love the pumpkin shaped sandwhich:) Thanks for sharing!! I'm a new reader... I'll be back to visit soon!

  6. What a cute idea! I'm going to try this with my DD (3)...she has always been a good eater until recently. Now she is stuck in a "lunch rut" and all she wants is peanut butter and jelly. This looks like a really fun way to get some different foods in there!


I love hearing from you!
