Lunch For The Minis: Mini Taco Bowls

This post is sponsored by Juicy Juice. Thanks for reading!

You already know how much The Tiniest Tatums love Juicy Juice (remember this post?), but did you know how simple packing kids lunches with leftovers can be? If your kids are anything like mine, they love tacos! They’d probably eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if I’d let them. Last Christmas, I kid you not, we had tacos for dinner. Combining their favorite foods with the convenience of a homemade lunch is a win-win situation for any Mom.

Sometimes it feels like keeping everyone fed and happy is difficult, but not today. This lunch idea is simple, easy, and utilizes leftovers so it prevents food from being wasted. Plus, it’s cheaper than buying boxed lunches – and healthier!

Ingredients for an Amazing Lunch

Tortilla Bowl Chips
Corn
Shredded Lettuce
Shredded Cheese
Leftover Pulled Pork
Your favorite Juicy Juice drinks

Gather your ingredients and get excited because this is the easiest lunch you’ll make all week. Our lunch starts with leftover pulled pork (which we made in the Instant Pot the night before – a lil’ Mom hack!). Then we added shredded cheese, corn, and lettuce. Of course this lunch isn’t complete without some Juicy Juice! I’m loving the Orange Tangerine Juicy Juice, and the little ones are, too.

This is where the kids can really make lunch their own. Beak up the tortilla bowls and mix all the ingredients together to make a taco salad, or layer the ingredients individually in the bowls. Either way, they’ll enjoy every bite! If your kids really like lettuce, you can stuff extra lettuce in. If they aren’t huge fans of corn, you can leave it out. The goal is to create a healthy, delicious lunch they will truly enjoy.

Mamas, you probably have tons of ideas swirling in your head already to make this lunch perfect for your kiddos: shredded chicken, beef, or even turkey with chips or crackers would be a great option, too. No matter how you decide to switch the lunches up each day, be sure to include Juicy Juice to keep everyone happy; Juicy Juice really completes the meal!

How do you keep lunch fun, without adding a ton of work to your workload? Dinosaur-shaped sandwiches, maybe? Let me know in the comments… I’d love some ideas to add to my stash!

    Forget the kiddos! I want this for myself, with bigger portions naturally. I love those containers tho! You stay bringing the good stuff!

    These look cute and fun. It’s just as good as a lunchable, but with more nutritional value.

    This is like your own lunchables. Why didnt they think of making tacos when we were kids. This is smart and fun for kids!

    Wer just did tacos for dinner the other night, and this is a perfect way to use up leftovers! I’d actually do this for myself, not just the littles! Haha!

    I have some super picky eaters, but they like tacos. I would have never thought to use cold pulled pork in a school lunch, but I eat it in salad all the time, so I know it’s yummy. Thanks for the great idea! Pinning.
