Muffin Tin Lunches

Okay, so apparently this has now become Lunch Week! We'll pretend it was intentional.

Today's find is Muffin Tin Mom. She has tons of ideas of how to make lunches or snacks that fit into the little compartments of a muffin tin, as well as some other crafty uses for the tins.

If you have two eaters, you can each eat from your half of a larger muffin tin.
Isn't that cute? I'd be totally happy to eat that (minus the ham).

Or, if it's just a meal for one, you can use a smaller tray.

Who wouldn't want to snack out of this tray?
(Not sure I'd want to do the clean-up though.)

Kids who normally wouldn't touch a certain food might be enticed to eat it if it comes from a fun little compartment in a special tray. Worth a shot, no? 

Of course, there's no real need to eat your lunch out of a muffin tin, but just because it isn't necessary doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. Live a little!
