I can eat a rainbow...

a rainbow inspired muffin tin dinner...

This is actually from last week, we have just got back from the in-laws and I haven't had chance to upload the pics yet. 

So, from 12 o'clock... 
red mini tomatoes
orange cheddar cheese
yellow mini tomatoes
green avocardo
pink parma ham
purple beetroot
blue blueberries
and white mascapone in the middle for dipping.

Ebi-kun had eaten half of it before he realised that I had colour coordinated the picks with the food!

This rainbow tin started lots of conversation about food and their colours, I love doing a weekly muffin tin meal, it is easy to throw together, Ebi-kun always demolishes the lot and it is a great way to introduce new foods (not that we have a problem with Ebi-kun and new food!) One of Ebi-kun's favourite things to do with his MTD if to combine foods that would not usually be served together. I often hear him muttering things like, 'ewww blueberry and ham is not a good combination' or 'hmmm beetroot and cheese is good together'

If you want to join in with the muffin tin fun, pop over to the muffin tin mom for the weekly linky.


  1. What a lovely bright tin! I like that you coordinated the picks.

  2. This looks so good! I am going to have to try this with the kiddos. Thank you for sharing.

  3. What a beautiful rainbow! What wonderful foods!

  4. What a pretty rainbow of yummy healthy food. Nicely done!

  5. What a wonderful rainbow tin. I love doing colors, when I am not doing tins based on letters of the alphabet.

  6. I love it! The white looks like clouds. What a fun meal!

  7. Looks Good
    Just one question Jo. Does Leo eat something else after the muffin tin dinner?

  8. GG- not usually, I often include dessert in with the MTD and the rule is that he can eat it in any order (the fun of eating dessert first!) as long as he eats it all. Sometimes I don't get the amounts right and he is too full but he will ask to save it for later!

  9. So pretty!

    I love that he likes to explore interesting food combinations. what a great idea!


Thank you!
