Muffin Tin Lunches

Muffin Tin Lunches are all the rage these days and I can see why. It's a clever and creative way to introduce new foods in small doses, create a well balanced colorful meal or to spice up the same 'ole everyday meal. After seeing this post from Flipflops and Applesauce,  where she mentions sycamore stirrings, I decided to give it a whirl and was pleased with my own tins for my kids.

Not to mention the process...cutting foods into miniature pieces and thinking up fun ways to add something sweet. I gave each kidlet their own tin (some like to make one tin and have the kids share, doling out two of everything.) My children like to enjoy their lunches separately- so no sharing at this point.

working clockwise beginning with the juice box 1) extra small 4oz juice box (fits nicely in the compartment!) 2) sugar free chocolate pudding w/ a tsp of rainbow sprinkles 3) Sargento String Cheese cut into little circles 4) Applesauce 5) PB & J sandwich cut into little circles with a metal measuring cup (no jelly for Luke) 6) green seedless grapes.

Today, I stuck with familiar foods since it was a new concept....This really was a lot of fun to prepare and give!

*CORRECTION/Update: Although, I mention Flipflops and Applesauce in this post. Sycamore Stirrings was the home of Muffin Tin Meals and the one that started it all, in October 2008 she passed the reins on to me (squee!) For more fun, visit muffintinmom.com.
