Muffin Tin Monday (our first!)

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

I'm desperate for anything that gets the Little Lady to eat.  To eat more than two bites.  To eat more than JUST her veggies (yes, I have an anti-meat kid).

At her last weight check, her doctor still wasn't 100% satisfied with the amount of weight she is gaining in between appointments (sigh), so I have until December to get the Little Lady a little chubbier.

Our first muffin-tin meal was a hit!  Did she eat every single thing?  No.  Did she eat most of it?  Pretty much.  Was she excited about her lunch?  DEFINITELY.

Being a quisitive little girl, she pushed a dining chair up to the counter where I was preparing her tin.  "What's dat?" she asked, pointing to the shiny metal tray.

As I filled each container with honey roasted peanuts, sliced cucumbers, italian meatballs, apples, oranges, and bagel bits, she became more and more excited . . nearly jumping off of the chair by the time I finished.


I loved hearing that sentence -- even if it was loud enough to wake the baby!!!!

Hopefully doing this more often will help her eat better :) It seems to have helped others too! I wouldve been excited about those nuts too!

Oh that is so cute! I have a non meat eater too! Can't figure out if it is the texture or what. He will eat a chicken nugget but just 1/2 of it. I'm hoping he will grow out of it???
