It’s time for another Munchkin Meals link up with Brittany over at A Healthy Slice of Life. Did you know Brittany is expecting another little girl? How exciting! I know just how much fun she is in for! Hairbows, dress up clothes, and sassyness galore! And a whole lot of sweetness watching sisters become friends.
So, munchkin meals. My big munchkin has a new favorite way to eat. A divider plate. I picked up some of these divider plates at Target in the Halloween clearance and she wants to eat every meal on them. And I have to fill all the squares, so I’ve been having a little fun with it.
Quesadillas are still her favorite lunch. Creature of habit.
Although we have a new snack these days!
Thanks to a coupon for pomegranates combined with a sale on pomegranates I thought we’d give them a try. The first one I bought was no good. I cut into it and the seeds were turning brown. But that didn’t deter me. I bought another (I had another coupon!). Success! Cupcake has been enjoying the seeds as a snack or a side with her lunch. Pumpkin and I have been eating them in our rolled oats for breakfast. I just bought another this week (which I need to cut!).
We’ve also been switching up the peanut butter lately for sunbutter. I found some on clearance for 50% off so I couldn’t pass up that deal. I’ve been swapping it for pb in the usual places. Sandwiches, apple slices, Pumpkin’s cheeks.
And here’s what happens when you feed Pumpkin some sweet potato Shephard’s pie.
The theme of this week and next at preschool is healthy, nutritious food vs. unhealthy food, so I’m hoping with a little guidance from something other than her mother she’ll go back to more adventurous eating. As always I’ll keep offering her healthy, wholesome meals and keep my fingers crossed for less tears at the dinner table.
