These whimsical sunflowers are always a huge hit! What my kids don’t know is that each flower contains Vegetables, Dairy, Whole Grain AND a complete serving of Fruit. They’re SO easy and I get bonus points w/ the kids for serving “fun food”. :)

Sunflower Sandwich Snackers 
makes 1
Ingredients:1/4 c. California raisins
2 T. reduced fat cream cheese
1 slice Orowheat sandwich thin (or other brand)
1 ounce sliced cheese
1/3 of a medium green pepper

Directions: Slice cheese into triangles. The best way is to slice it in half one way, then in half the other. 
Then, slice each square into triangles (see below)
Place sandwich thin on plate and spread with cream cheese. Sprinkle raisins on top and set on plate. Slice green pepper into strips. Spread on plate too look like a flower "stem" and "grass". Arrange cheese trianges around sandwich thin and serve.

Disclosure: We created this fun sandwich snack for the California Raisins "Let's Re-Do Lunch" contest. You can go here to join in on the fun! I was not compensated in any way for this post. You can learn more about the fabulous Meal Makeover Moms here.

Tanahmera's Toddler Meatloaf Cupcakes

by Tamara Rutledge
(Waterloo, Ont, Canada)
For kids who refuse to eat
For kids who refuse to eat "normal" meatloaf!

Ok first allow me to state that this recipe was born of necessity. You see, my toddler, (Marcus), refused to eat my meatloaf, not because it sucks, but because it was lacking in sensory appeal, apparently, (he is very artistic). So if you're a mom with the same problem, try this, it works....

* Make your meatloaf the same way as usual.
* Put it in a muffin pan (without the cupcake papers).
* Ice it with ketchup -optional:)
