I guess I'm a little late introducing Dalton to Muffin Tin Meals – he's nearly two. But I thought I'd use it this week to get him to try new foods. First I tried giving him carrot sticks with chicken nuggets and Smilies (“crispy mashed potatoes”). He would only eat one carrot.
No such luck. I even put some sprinkles on the banana slices and he picked off every single one. But he did eat all the other fruit I served, and some of his sister's apple pieces, too.
Even though it wasn't very successful this time, muffin tin meals are perfect for toddlers. The little portions are just his size, and food served in a muffin cup is begging to be dipped – and what kid doesn't like dipping?
