dinner tray

I like to put the kids meals on divided plates to keep stuff separate and also the edge make it easier for Griffin to feed himself
but the little plates usually only have three sections which is not always enough
I got these trays at Delk's Army Navy and they are fun for the kids- they remind me of eating in a cafeteria
so tonight they had rice with hamburger steak and mushrooms
fresh veggies with light ranch
fruit and berries- well Syd had grapes and Griffin had grapes plus blueberries and strawberries
the last spot on the tray was taken up by a chocolate chip cookie for dessert
try as I may Syd does not like berries or melon (weird to me because those things are so yummy and sweet)
and Griffin would eat his weight in berries if I let him (he had three helpings tonight and I cut him off)
Aldi's has blueberries and strawberries on sale this week so we stocked up

do you kids eat on anything special?


  1. Mine eat on trays like that too! Do you ever go to Costco? Mine are berry eaters...and any other fruit I can get ahold of. Costco has HUGE packs of blueberries/strawberries/blackberries/grapes at great prices. It's worth the trip up there for them for sure!

  2. what a great idea! we're always running out of space in the traditional 3 section plates.
