  1. I LOVE this post and will be using your advice. This really is a terrific way to eat in proper portions, while eating what is GOOD for a body. Thank you for sharing this. Carrie, A Mother's Shadow

    1. Hi Carrie, grazing on nutrient dense foods is the way to go from toddlers on up! Kids already know how to graze so we can learn a lot from their ways and little muffin trays really help showcase the yummy snacks. Be well! =)
