Before staying home with my kids, I was an elementary school teacher. I used to love eating lunch with my students in the cafeteria. I especially enjoyed seeing their reaction when they opened their lunch box, and their mom had packed something special. Either a favorite treat, a note, or their sandwich cut in a special way. I saw time and time again that something as small as a note in the lunch box brightened a kid’s day.

I know it sounds silly, but I’ve been eagerly waiting for my daughter to go to school so I can make her day with a special lunch. I love turning her favorite foods into special lunch creations. She’s a great helper in the kitchen. And she really enjoys coming up with her own “recipe” creations. That’s where these Lunch Box Tacos come in. I knew she would love the idea of making her own tacos at lunchtime.
