Format: Hardcover
Lunch Boxes and Snacks: Over 120 healthy recipes from delicious sandwhiches and salads to hot soups and sweet treats is a great guide for the end of boredom at school and at work. Everything here is packable, nutritious and wonderfully good-tasting.

The book includes information on how to keep food safe after it leaves your refrigerator and how to involve kids in the selection and process.

But, be advised that it is great for adults also. We get bored with everyday same-old same-old, too!

I purchased this book on a whim while food-shopping at a mega-market. I flipped through it over coffee and went right back to the aisles for some immediate meal transformations.

I don't regret purchasing it!

I am not the most creative person when it comes to packed lunches, but this book makes it easy! Many ingredients are easily found, and likely to be in your fridge or pantry already. Many you can make with leftover foods such as cooked chicken, or the 2 tablespoons of corn left over from dinner. Most are items my daughter will readily eat without complaint. For health reasons, we decided to stop eating cafeteria food and started packing our own. I ran out of ideas rather quickly and knew we had to break away from PB&J, so I ordered this book. What's great it that it's "adult friendly" too. No smiley face sandwiches or mac and cheese here...just healthy food made easy. Our kiddo is now the envy of the lunch room!

This little book has lots of very pretty pictures, but there isn't much substance here. Fairly basic sandwiches, pasta salads, variations on green salads, a few soups, and some desserts. You could easily find similar recipes in any decent basic cookbook. There is certainly nothing here that makes these recipes more lunchbox-friendly than any other sandwiches, entrees and sides. Also, you should be aware that of the 128 pages, about half are full-page photographs, so there aren't as many recipes as you might think. (I didn't realize that the author is a celebrity in the U.K.: this book does seem like it was published as an easy-sell for a popular television personality.) I did get a few ideas from the book, but I was hoping for something beyond the basics.

I was really excited to get this book based on the reviews I read about it. I like the size of the book and the fact that it is hardbound. There are pictures for some of the recipes, but not all. I would like to see more pictures for every recipe. The intro to the book is really good because it talks about what kinds of foods should be in a lunch and how to pack the lunch to maintain food safety etc. There is a lot of useful information there. Plus, there are little tips throughout the book. The reason why I gave it 3 stars is because it does have a lot of recipes with chicken, mayo and tortillas. It would have been nice to see more variety. Like the title of the book, not all of these recipes are for a lunch box. In addition to chicken there is a lot of tuna. Once I swap out the tuna for chicken, this will be a chicken cookbook. This book is not what I thought it would be, but maybe once I start making some of the recipes I will like it better? I will most likely keep the book.

There are quite a few nice recipes here. But some duds, too. The energy bars contain corn syrup. (Ellie Krieger has a much better recipe for energy bars in "The Food You Crave.") The biggest miss is in the area of planning and packing. It would be great to have more ideas about how to manage a week of lunch preparation in minimum time, maybe by combining recipes or mixing healthful store-bought snacks with homemade ones. A few weeks of complete sample boxes would be great. Worst part of the book are the fancy pictures that give you no ideas about how to pack all of these wraps, salads and soups. There are a lot of great reusable containers now--stainless steel, air-tight glass with locks, etc.--but the pictures in this book show fancy photos with carrots wrapped in straw and soup being served in china bowls.

As with any cook book there are hits and there are total misses but this book presents a wide variety of new ideas and twists on old ones to keep your lunch interesting for weeks. It has good eye appeal, though there aren't pictures of every dish presented. Another plus for this title is the great variety of items to chose from; there are the requisite sandwiches but also wraps, salads, hot items, and sweets. Some recipes aren't conducive to packed lunches (open faced sandwiches)but even those can be adapted. I see this as a great book for SAHM's and daycares to stir things up at lunchtime. Many of these dishes are simple enough that children can help make them. Well worth the small investment.

BEST BOOK FOR HEALTHY LUNCHES ever created.

Seriously.

We are previous homeschoolers. I have never had to worry about packing lunches. I am currently studying to become Master Herbalist (working way to Naturopath) and my whole family's eating habits have changed over the last two years. I was STRESSING over packing my son's lunches. I didn't want babyish looking lunches, he is in 7th grade. I wanted healthy and eye appealing.

After searching for the perfect lunchbox (Planetbox), the perfect thing to hold my son's raw milk (Klean Kanteen), and the perfect thermos (for soups, Thermos brand with spoon in the lid), I then needed to find ideas to fill all of the little compartments in the Planetbox.

I am so glad that I found this book. My son goes through it and picks out lunches every weekend. I make them the night before (or parts of them) and I wake up the next morning and put it together. The sweets are great. Homemade granola bars and the flourless peanut butter cookies. I couldn't ask for better for my son's lunches. He is enjoying them, too and we have tested different ones over the last two weeks of school.

I am so impressed with this author, I am eyeing her other books. Definitely a keeper.
