A while back a saw a picture of a plate shaped like a pineapple with lots of different compartments in a parenting magazine. I saw it and loved it. My frugal nature would not permit me to buy it, but I was smitten with the idea of a kids plate with lots of different compartments and sections. Compartments perfect for a dipping lunch. Of course I thought there must be a better less expensive way. While baking the idea hit me.
Muffin tins have sections. I already have muffin tins. Perfect. Then I came across the Muffin Tin Mom and didn’t feel quite so original or creative. I guess my little idea has good company though. Muffin tin lunches have become a huge hit with the little ones and while I love muffin tins for several reasons my favorite things is how much easier it makes remembering to include all of the food groups in lunch.
What’s on the plate:
- Egg Salad
- Cottage cheese
