My first Muffin Tin Monday

So in an attempt to coerce The Muffin into eating some new (and hopefully healthy) things, and also (let's Be Honest) because I think it's rather fun, I have decided to join Muffin Tin Mondays!

This is a really cool idea, hosted by Michelle of Muffin Tin Mom. Essentially it's very simple: Put Your Child's Lunch In A Muffin Tin. Instant Fun Ensues. And guess what - it actually works!

This week there was no theme, so I made up my own: Circles. And here it is:


Top row: Vegemite sandwiches; same again; buttered pikelets.
Bottom row: Carrot circles; Yoghurt & spinach dipping sauce; Blackcurrants & a marshmallow.

And she ate almost all of it! "After" shot:

Woo hoo! And this is a child who never eats raw carrot. She loved dipping them in the sauce.

The verdict? Muffin Tin Mondays are here to stay.

Yeah. Mine isn't too interested in eating broccoli if she knows that there's candy in the house, but she looks forward to my weekly "beautiful lunch" (her term) in a muffin tin!
