Healthy kids...

Helping families raise healthy kids is one of our favorite things we get to do here at Andy's Market.

There is nothing quite as challenging as getting a toddler to eat a healthy, well balanced meal.  

These little eaters can be quite picky, their palette can change daily as to what they think tastes good or bad.  Offering them healthy choices that they can pick from is one way to help empower a toddler by allowing them to make their own choices, and yet ensure they are eating healthy options.

Here is one of our favorite tricks we are happy to pass along to you:

Muffin Tin Meals

The idea is simple, take a small six cup muffin tin and fill each cup with a healthy option.   The portions  are a great size for a toddler, it offers several options in one meal, and your toddler feels like a big kid for getting to chose what they eat. 

Ideas for filling a muffin tin include:

nut butters for dipping fruit
dressing for dipping veggies
slices of cheese
dried fruit
dry cereal
sliced luncheon meat or hot dog
trail mix
