Best Lunch Box Ever: Ideas and Recipes for School Lunches Kids Will Love by Katie Morford
I have two kids going into school this year. One that will eat almost anything and the other that will eat only grilled cheese sandwiches or peanut butter sandwiches. Our school does not allow peanut butter so that really limits my choices, plus she’s the one with diabetes, so she needs to eat a carb for her lunch. Our school also has two lunches, nutrition breaks. That makes for 4 lunches a day! I know there is only o many times my non-picky eater can eat a turkey sandwich before she won’t eat it anymore. That is where I’m excited about the book “Best Lunch Box Ever”.
Katie Morford’s book separates food ideas into categories. There are 4 main dishes- Sandwiches, Salads, Pizzas/Wraps- Leftovers. There are 3 side dish categories- Fruit/Veggie, Crunchy Extras, Goodies. And a section for after school eating. Before she gets into the recipes she shares with us healthy times and facts.
I really loved this book. I started out dog earring the pages I thought my kids would love, after a few chapters I realized I was dog earring almost all the pages. The recipes sounds easy to make and yummy. Even foods I think my picky eater will eat- even a variation of a grilled cheese sandwich that includes an apple! Most of the recipes are written to make two of it or more. This will make it so easy to prepare both my kids’ lunches. I also loved the leftovers section, they take what you may have eaten the night before and add a little twist to them. That way your child isn’t getting the same meal the next day but you’re still using your leftovers. I can actually see me planning my dinners around what I’d like to make for lunch the next day.
I would highly recommend this book to all households. Even if you don’t have kids, it’s a great book to help make your work lunches not so blah. The recipes are simple and sounds amazing. I’m looking forward to preparing lunches this Fall.
