1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

Sometimes it’s really hard to get kids interested in healthy meals. Meals that are ‘some assembly required’ are great options here. Kids love meals they ‘create’ themselves. As a bonus, these chicken Fajitas are also egg and nut free.

Serves 4

Nut free

You Will Need:
