Who says lunchboxes have to be complicated? Turn last night’s Taco Tuesday into a delicious taco salad for lunch the next day with your leftover taco meat.
You can also go vegetarian with black beans or lentils! Get creative with toppings – add fresh cilantro, salsa, corn and more.
Nutrition Tip: The vitamin C in the romaine and tomatoes make it easier for your child’s body to soak up the iron from the ground turkey in this dish–and iron is key while kids are growing!
