Tots of all ages love to build. While blocks may be the most common material used to create towers and castles, you can easily channel your lil one's enthusiasm to the dinner table with a meal that is meant to be creatively constructed. Taco bars allow you to present a variety of items to your finicky eater, while allowing him to build his own masterpiece.
YumSugar has a number of taco recipes ranging from fish and meat to vegetarian from which you can create the base of your meal. Then, simply fill bowls with various toppings from which your family can choose. Possible fillings can include rice, corn, salsa, beans, cheese, tomatoes and more. Offer up both taco shells and tortillas to give your budding chefs an opportunity to compare the textures and then watch them build the entree on their plates. For those kids who need a little encouragement to try something new, create a contest to see who can include the most colors in their taco or who can build the tallest one.
