Tacos are a perfect meal for teaching your kids how to help out in the kitchen. With the right tools and a little supervision, even younger kids can help dice avocado and shred cabbage. Being able to assemble their own gives them motivation to try fruit and veggies in interesting new combinations. Instead of giving up on a nutritious meal during the holiday rush, turn eating well into a shared job to make life easier and bring your family closer.
