Potatoes are really cheap right now. Around here, you can buy a ten pound bag for under two dollars if you shop around. My kids like baked potatoes and I like that they are healthy and full of fiber and easy to make.
I worked at a small private school when I lived in Indiana. Lunch was included as a small salary perk. They really knew how to cook! It was good food and I didn't have to worry about packing a lunch every day. I even got a few really good recipes from those wonderful ladies. One was irish tacos. Instead of giving each kid taco shells, which got smashed up because eating tacos at school is a pretty messy job. They gave each child a baked potato and put the taco fixings on top. Easy and really good. It's one of my own kids favorite meals just like it was at school.
1 baked potato for each person
1/4 cup of taco meat
1/4 cup black, pinto or any kind of beans
lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, sour cream, black olives, salsa....anything else you eat on your taco
This makes a great party food for kids too. I serve it as a bar style where everyone goes by and tops their own potato the way they like it!
