EAT: Kid Friendly Taco Bar!

I am a huge fan of taco night. I love how easy it is to make and get on the table quickly. Now that my kids are getting older they have been becoming pickier with what they eat. I have to get creative and find ways that will encourage them to eat new things. 
The best way to get Ace to eat something out of his norm is to have him help make his food. He likes when he feels like he is in control of what he is eating. This gives him options on what he puts on his plate and there is no nagging from Branden and myself for him to eat more. We kept our taco bar simple but you can add any toppings you think your little one would love.
Our Taco Bar
Black Bean & Corn Salsa
Tortilla Chips
Ground Turkey
Plain Greek Yogurt (instead of sour cream)
Shredded Cheese
Romain Lettuce
Taco Boats
Mild Taco Sauce
What else you can add (and we probably would have had we not also had the salsa) 
Avocados or Guacamole 
Tomatoes 
Rice 
Get creative!







The best way to go about this is to make it fun. If they have fun bowls they really like put the toppings in there. We also laid brown wrapping paper over the table and let them draw. It makes dinner fun and feel special. It also kept them busy while we got everything ready. Another fun option are these awesome taco boats. The kids can fill them up and eat from them or pick them up and bite without spilling!
