Muffin Tin Monday - with a Giveaway
We got to try out these super cool Nibble Trays for Muffin Tin Monday. Dr Sears has teamed up with Zak Designs to create a line of mealtime products for kids. I absolutely love Dr Sears' books and have talked about The Healthiest Kid in the Neighborhood in the past. One thing he mentions is letting your children graze on healthy snacks. Filling up a cute tray like this and having it available when the munchies hit is a great way to make eating fun and healthy. The tray has a lid, so you can chop up fruits and veggies and have them in the fridge all ready to go. The green part can actually be detached and frozen to keep dips cool.
I love that the tray comes with some ideas for making meals fun and feeding your kids healthy foods. You can also find tips, recipes, and even a forum on the Zak Designs website. The Nibble Tray is PVC, BPA, and phthalate free.
We filled our trays on Saturday after a trip to the farmer's market. Strawberries, cherries, peas, cheese, carrots, crackers, and ranch dip made a perfect lunch! Lucy ate all of hers (with some coaxing), and Julia refused a couple of things (of course). My girls are always asking for snacks, so I'm going to try filling this up tomorrow morning and just letting them pull it out all day when they are hungry between meals. Maybe seeing those peas multiple times a day would convince them to try one?
