These bite-size tacos are the perfect way to spice up your kiddo’s lunch and get you both out of the sandwich rut. Letting the kids pick their own favorite taco toppings makes them even more fun.

My kids enjoy these at room temperature, but if your child will only eat them warm, just send them in a thermos that’s been preheated.
