Create Your Own Meal of Choice at Chipotle


I have been compensated for this post, all opinions expressed are my own. 


I remember the first time I ate at a Chipotle. It was before kids, meaning it was a whole other world. Picky eating didn’t really play a part in that experience. Fast-forward around ten years later and now I have three little boys.

Eating out with children is an entirely different experience. As my boys get older their preferences are developing. For instance my 10 year old he becoming more distinct in his choices. He used to like fish. He used to like taco seasoning. Now he refuses to eat either. Such is the way with kids. 


I used to consider Chipotle not a kid friendly restaurant. It seemed like the only kid option was a quesadilla. But times have changes and now Chipotle has a much more extensive menu including a kids portion. My little guys love the ability to pick and choose which items they want.

At our most recent visit my boys exhibited their diverse preferences. Our local Chipotle always seems to be busy and the photo below might give a false impression. What you can’t see is the long line to order. 


Each of my boys ordered their preferred meal and of course so did the grown-ups.

My kids absolutely loved the little trays their meals came on. They are so kid friendly! My oldest son {who doesn’t like tortillas} was able to have a meat only option which included beans, rice, and salsa. It was perfect! While my youngest son had a quesadilla and my middle son had kid-sized tacos.

I recently heard of Chipotle’s dedication to using only non-GMO ingredients which makes this restaurant selection a truly win-win situation in my opinion. My kids are happy selecting the dish they prefer and I know they are being feed restaurant food with minimal additives. 

Connect with Chipotle online and on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for more information. 

Have you visited a Chipotle location recently? What meal do you kids prefer?

  3. Chipotle really does make some delicious food. I love that now we can create our own meal with this line up. I’m sure it’s a big hit and is really helping their customers to be happy.

    Omg I’m obsessed with chipotle!! I wish we had one local. The closest one is about an hour away… Totally worth the drive though!
