Simple Chicken Tacos for the Kiddos 🌮 🌮 🌮

Nourishing and nurturing little bodies is our priority at Hessel, which is why we have partnered with Sprout to offer your child the most exciting, holistic – and most importantly – delicious, nutritional programs.

Chef Anthony shares his secret recipe for chicken tacos – a firm favourite with our little (and not so little) people!
Our delicious and nutritious menu was developed by the experienced chefs and dieticians at Sprout Cooking School. The fresh, healthy menus make the most of seasonal produce, meet all the nutritional needs of children and most importantly mean lots of empty plates!
