The recipes are very simple, and the food is very healthy.

Trying to change our eating habits to a healthier way and this gives plenty of new ideas for a working couple to enjoy lunch but in a healthy way!

For the bad news: First, this is a small paperback book -- as in approx 6 x 6 inches. And, disappointingly, there are almost no photographs of the recipes.

For the good news: After going brain-dead trying to come up with more variety for my kids' lunches, I needed inspiration. The recipes in this book are interesting and innovative. Some need a fair amount of preparation, but most are quick to put together.

As with all "healthy" recipe books, there are foods here that no kid would touch, but most of the recipes are sure to be kid-pleasers. If you're wanting to shake up the lunch-box routine, you're sure to find some helpful ideas here. There are some recipes that have even made it into our "quick and easy" dinner rotation.

If your tired of hotdogs and chicken nuggets like we were, and want to start fixing healthy lunches,...this is a very good cookbook. The recipes are very simple, and the food is very healthy. The only downfall I would say is that even though the food is great you may have a hard time with picky eaters. For example I could not get mine to eat Hummus or Tabboule. Thier are a few "wierd" ingredients but most recipes don't require very many ingredients. Btw, I make lunches for my hubby with this book too.

I picked up this little book because my kids were so sick of PB&J or tuna sandwiches they were threatening to riot. I've also decided to make a change in our entire family's diet to a more healthful way of eating, especially since two of us could stand to lose some weight and my son has ADHD.

What some others found to be "weird", I actually found to be very inspiring. Tzatziki might sound weird or exotic at first glance, but if you bother to actually read the description, it is simply a delicious Greek yogurt dip found in any Greek restaurant, and my kids both love it! Frankly, I would have been very disappointed if there weren't some recipes in here that sound a little different and new -- what good would a cookbook be if it just contained the same ol', same ol' that my family is familiar and bored with. I'm excited at the idea of expanding my kids' palates and introducing them to new foods and tastes they haven't experienced before so that they enjoy a wide variety of foods and don't turn into picky adults.

Kids can be surprisingly adventurous eaters if they are introduced to a variety of healthy foods early on, and this cookbook contains a lot of excellent starter recipes to get them going. My kids will be so relieved to see some new and exciting foods in their lunchboxes this year! I also liked that many of the recipes would make perfect after-school snacks without much trouble at all -- a welcome relief from the prepackaged crackers and snacks we had come to rely on.

By the way, I also like the way the book is laid out -- it is extremely attractive and easy to read, and for each and every recipe, the prep times are given, as are serving suggestions and health benefits of the specific ingredients for that recipe! While there aren't photographs for ALL the recipes, there are plenty, and they all look delicious.

I'm sorry, but any author who puts "Herrings on Rye" and "Sardines on Brown" as suggested recipes for my kids to eat is insane! This recipe book is NOT kid friendly. Luckily I checked this book out of the library before buying it - and there is a reason someone donated it to the library in the first place! I also checked out "Lunch Boxes and Snacks" by Annabel Karmel, and that book is great - I'm actually excited to try the recipes and my kids liked the ones I read aloud or showed them the photo of.

It's a cute little book - very small. It gets lost in my kitchen because of it's small size. Some of the recipes are pretty complicated for a child's lunch and would take some time to prepare, too. They seemed more fitting for a semi-fancy adult's lunch. I personally enjoy them in my own lunch and only occasionally fix them for my kids. I wouldn't consider this a good book if your child is a picky eater.

This cookbook has some good recipes, but a few are a bit unusual. It definately will give you some different ideas for packing food if you're sick of lunchmeat and PB&J. They appeal more to adults than kids. The ingredient list is on the short side, which is good, but a few can be hard to find (some of the cheeses would be easy to find in Europe, but not Indiana.) The recipes use very healthy ingredients, and it gave me a chance to use some I had never heard of before (bulgar, couscous, nectarines.) On the downside, there is no nutrition info. Overall, I'm very glad to have this cookbook, and I do use it almost every week.

I always have trouble deciding what my kids should have to eat in their lunch boxes. I got this book and had them mark the pages that seemed like something they would like to try. Then we tried those choices before sending them to school. This worked really well and the kids enjoy having something new in their lunches.

While I do agree that this book may not be for the pickiest of eaters, it has a great variety of tasty recipes that the whole family can enjoy. Also given are some sample menus for special diets and preparation times for recipes. One thing I particularly like about this book is that it also has recommendations for accompaniments to the recipes. All of the recipes are healthy and tasty, and while the variety may be experimental for some, you never know, you might get to enjoy something new!
