I'm always on the lookout for fun snacks for the girls. In my searches I've come across Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth. The idea is that an entire meal or snack be served from a muffin tin on Monday. Each week she gives you a different theme for the snack/meal and the people participating will post a photo and description of what they served. I've gotten lots of neat ideas from this. I have tried out Muffin Tin Snacks on the girls but I'm not sure it has ever been on a Monday. They enjoy this snack with a variety of foods looking around and picking their favorite items first. Nollie especially likes the colour themes. It allows me to easily see that I'm giving a variety of food groups and I don't feel bad about throwing in a couple Smarties or M&Ms because I know they're eating their Vegies too. The best part about it is that I have to work my mind and be a little bit creative if I have a theme to work on. I use a 12 muffin tray and give each girl 6 of the spots on either side. They then sit across from eachother at there little table and pick away at it. I do find I get a bit carried away with the amount that I give for a snack, when there are 6 items you don't need very much of each one. The last time I used mini muffin tins and I kept the portions to a more reasonable size.
