Muffin Tin Meals

So, I’ve recently discovered the easiest and cutest little idea for changing up mealtime with the kiddos–Muffin Tin Meals!  At Muffin Tin Mom, every Monday is “Muffin Tin Monday“–where other moms link up their muffin tin meals from the week.  Some weeks are themes, though it certainly doesn’t have to be.  (You can read all about Muffin Tin Mondays here).  Creativity abounds and I’ve seen so many cute ideas for serving food.  I definitely need to get my hands on some cute cutters! 🙂
So, needless to say, I just had to try muffin tin meals with Big Brother.  Although this week is technically no-theme week, I decided to do different shapes (something we’re working on anyway). 
He was so excited when I set his tin down and then we went over what all the shapes were. 
Clockwise (starting top left): Triscuit Thin Crisps triangles, string cheese circles, heartbeet cookie, peach squares, olive ovals (Big Brother deemed them ovals instead of circles), and  ham squares.
It was fun finding foods that already had their own shapes.  Then, I just cut the string cheese into circles and the lunch meat ham into squares.  Easy peasy and he ate every single thing!!   
So, if you’re looking for a fun way to change up meal time, definitely check out Muffin Tin Mondays!!

  1. Definitely need to find an opportunity to make those cookies. Your shape tin is so simple and well balanced nutritionally. Love it! I didn't even think of olives for ovals when I did a shape tin recently. We had hard boiled eggs.

  2. I've never seen these muffin tin meals before. I love the idea. I guess you could even put a drink cup in one place. I use several small bowls or plates for the kids at every meal, this would cut down on the dish clutter. Thanks for sharing, I'm going to check out your other ones.
