Our First Muffin Tin Monday

Muffin Tin Monday

Alphabet cereal, Apple, Pancakes, Yogurt Smoothie, Scrambled eggs, & Raisin Toast

The benefits of Muffin Tin Monday are a breaking up the lunchtime routine, serving foods in smaller more manageable portions for little ones, and introducing new foods in a fun and interesting way.

Sometimes there is a theme for Muffin Tin Monday, but this week there wasn’t which made it easier for our first time. When I first got out the muffin tin I thought “How am I going to fill this up? This is a lot of food.” Once I got started I realized the portion size in the muffin cup is really small (1/2 a pancake, one slice of apple, etc.). Also, I had to remember I was using this opportunity to serve some of the things I knew B didn’t prefer and so I knew he wouldn’t eat it all.

This was a really was a fun way to serve a meal. It was easy cleanup to just dump the muffin cups. I look forward to planning for a theme next week. It will spice things up for me. (Note to self…this will be a great opportunity to teach/talk about food groups.)

    Sounds like a delicious breakfast! You’re so right about portion sizes! I should eat all my meals out of muffin tins to help me lose weight, lol.

    I just bought a little 6-cup muffin tin today. I think it’s a good thing to try this with my picky eater. I hope it works!
