Healthy Tacos for Taco Tuesday

healthy-tacosby Kate from Little People, Big Tummies

In my house we love tacos. Healthy tacos are a great and easy way to get your kids to eat salad. I came up with this because my eldest daughter has food intolerances and I am watching my (and hubby’s) waist line. It was quick and easy for the kids to make their own because they stand up by themselves. Give it a try the kids will love them.

Chilli con- carne recipe

Mountain bread cups


  • One packet of mountain bread

Step 2. Cut the bread into 1/4’s and place into the muffin tray. Once  tray is filled place in the oven for 10 mins or until crispy.

Top Tip: You can choose your own fillings for this.
We like to use lettuce,tomatoes,cheese and avocado.
Instead of sour cream give Greek
 yoghurt a go! It’s delicious

About Kate: I try to do new and interesting things for the kid’s school lunches as I was sick of them coming home with their lunch boxes untouched. I know by talking to other parents I am not alone, which is why I started Little People, Big Tummies . My girls and I often cook together as I think it’s a great way to get them interested in healthy eating and trying new things. Not to mention teaching them how to cook which is a great skill to have.
