When it comes to family dinners, life can get a bit Groundhog Day. When you find something that ‘most’ of the family will eat ‘most’ of the time it can be tempting to bust it out night after night after night.

So hearing that a recipe is a sure-fire winner to add to your repertoire is like finding a nugget of parenting gold! And we’ve got two bangers for you.

Blogger Chantelle Ellem aka Fat Mum Slim and Yummy Mummy’s Lorinska Merrington have taken the humble taco and each given it a little family-friendly twist which they’re sharing with us at Bounty Parents.
