Young children like small amounts of food at a time. And offering small amounts, in a pleasing setting, is also a good way to introduce new foods.
I came across a blog, Muffin Tin Mom, who uses muffin tins for the children. What a terrific and fun idea and low cost ! She also also hosts Muffin Tin Monday on her blog.
It reminds me of the Bento box . . . and the Planet Box that Beth recommended, both of which are great for kids on the go.
I like having a sampling of foods to snack on. My tween and teen love it too.
Many times they are engrossed in projects and are too busy to eat. But if I put a sampling of foods on a plate in front of them, a monkey platter, it's gone in no time. It's a great way to eat nutritiously.
