Muffin Tin Monday

A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled on to a site that featured Muffin Tin Monday's. The premise behind it is to make food fun for kids and to get them to try new things. I totally missed last weeks MTM, but I was all over it yesterday. We had some friends over, so I made enough for all of them. The two sweet brothers had to share...not enough space.

I labeled each of their rows with their initials.
This week I served up: yellow carrots, kiwi, colby jack cheese, avocado, cottage cheese, and peas.
before her friends even got here, Mia was into her tin cups :)

I separated hers from the rest b/c she had her eye on some more cheese

Layla wasn't too sure about it all, but thought it was a great idea

her first choice was the cottage cheese

very proudly 'all gone'

Sadly, no one else got to participate in MTM....except Niles! *I almost forgot to add that lil Townsend was a lil disappointed he didn't get his avocado cupcake...how sweet is that?!?!*

some other fun shots of the day

Layla was feeling quite musical with the guitar

What a fun idea! N has generally been a pretty good eater, but she's been picky lately - I will have to do this with her!

And yellow carrots? how cool!
