Pita Tacos Bento for Faith

The mini-pita breads have long been a favorite for F&B. Mini food, of course, is much more fun than regular sized food, and they do provide some other good sandwich options, especially with messier fillings. They also make a darn good taco shell for leftover taco meat in lunches.


Faith has a couple of mini pita tacos (leftover turkey taco meat and some kind of marble cheese since I ran out of shredded taco cheese). To go along with that meal, she has carrots, a few cucumber flowers, strawberries, and some peach yogurt, all packed in a 4-square Lock & Lock box.

  1. LOVE this idea! I've never seen mini-pita bread before, I'm assuming I can can get it at a regular grocery store?

  2. I get it at Kroger (Dallas area). It's in the bakery section with the regular pita breads, packaged, not baked in store. The one we buy is "Toufayan".

  3. Ooh, love this! I have some of those mini-pitas in the freezer and we had tacos last night. I was thinking to myself, the taco fixings would make a great 'lunchable' type lunch for my kids. Will have to try it--thanks!

  8. Those mini pitas are the cutest. You're right that mini food is much, much better than regular sized food.

  9. Mini food is also less daunting for kids - they don't necessarily want to commit to eating a whole bunch of something they might not like, but a tiny serving is like a promise that they only need to try it! I'll bet your kids are very good eaters as a result of all this tiny cuteness.

  10. Mini food rocks. It is how I have convinced Audrey to try tomatoes again. We purchased a container of local, mini tomatoes and she keeps telling me how much she loves them.

  11. If you can't find those mini-pita breads in your store as I could not, I have a good recipe:
