My new favorite lunch: Muffin Tin Meals

This is the easiest, most kid friendly lunch out there! I learned about these from a fellow homeschooler who has Muffin Tin Mondays. Every Monday for lunch, they pull out the 6 cup muffin tin and fill it with anything you can find. Nuts, meatballs, chicken nuggets, hummus, canned fruit, broccoli, apple slices, animal crackers, cheese cubes…you name it! It’s a fun picnic type lunch for the kids and a great way to clean out the fridge and get rid of things you only have a small portion of. With 6 cups, you can do a variety of foods to cover all the food groups and kids get to graze. It’s also a great way to introduce new foods that you want them to try in a fun, not-so-intimidating way.

Try it out some day and see if you like it! We throw a blanket out on the living room floor and eat picnic style. That makes clean up a snap. Let me know how it works for your family!
