Muffin Tin Meals

Are you looking for a way to spruce up a kid meal and/or try to get kids to eat a variety of foods? Why not try muffin tins meal to make eating fun 🙂 Muffin tin meals are nothing new, I’ve actually been doing it with my daughter since she was little. She loves the eggs-style snacks too! It takes little to no effort and is a great way to make a meal or snack kid friendly and you can also clean out the fridge with leftovers!

Muffin Tin Meals

What fun for a special snack or even a play date. Line some muffin tins with cupcake liners and add a few snacks and you’re good to go!

Have some random leftovers and don’t know what to do? Are your kids begging for a ‘snack’ dinner? Try muffin tins for dinner. You can add a hodge podge of foods from your fridge and your kids will be so happy. Set up a movie and lay a blanket down for dinner and a movie!


Muffin Tin Food Ideas:

Any fruits (just cut up)


Turkey dog (cut into small bites)

Bow tie noodles

Any veggies (cut up)

Cheese stick


Bean/Tortilla Roll Up


Lunch Meat



Cut up PB & J



Chicken Bites


Be sure to only give your child what they can tolerate and cut up fruits/veggies/meats to prevent choking 🙂

    Yeah – so I’m probably totally going to use these for myself, but oh well, if I can fill it with healthy stuff – also, this seems like a great way to keep your snacking under control: you get one tray per day, and that’s it 🙂

    Love this! So I don’t have kids myself, but I love making snacks with muffin trays because it gives me a chance to eat a variety of things with portion control. I use silicone baking cups.

    […] These really are easy to put together. I bought the muffin tins at the $1 store along with some Halloween themed cupcake liners. I fixed these for my daughter and a friend one day last week and they literally ate them all up, fast! Muffin Tin Snack ideas are super fun to make and you can do them for lots of themes.
