Continuing with our rainbow theme, this week's Muffin Tin Meal was all about the color Yellow! Maggie got really into this. When I asked her what foods were yellow, she opened the fridge and started calling things out. cheese! (not dyed orange here.) Lemon! This thing! (She found the yellow bell pepper in the veggie drawer.) When I remembered we had a yellow spoon, she excitedly found a yellow cup to use also.
Here's what we ended up with:
- lemon slice (they're called limes here, and look like yellow-ish limes, but they taste like a lemon)
- water in a yellow cup (I wanted pineapple juice but could only find “pineapple drink,” even in the Del Monte brand… no thanks!)
- yellow bell pepper
- macaroni and cheese
- frozen banana on a stick
- banana chips
Maggie hasn't eaten any bananas since we moved to India, unless you count banana chips. These are a popular indian snack – banana slices deep-fried in coconut oil. I don't like them, but my husband and kids sure do. So, I tried the frozen banana. She peeled the banana and put it on the stick herself. I had to coax her to try it, but she ate over half of it and I was amazed. This is an elaichi banana, the perfect size for small kids.

Another great yellow lunch. Frozen banana sound yummy.
What a neat idea! I’ve been looking for ways to get my kid into eating different things; this might work!
I also wanted to let you know that I would be very very interested in learning more about your experiences living in India – do you have anything written on the subject? I saw the first post you made when you let us know you were moving, but I hadn’t seen anything since. My husband and I were talking about staying there for a while and I’d love to hear more about what it’s been like for your family living there!
