This review is from: Vegan Lunch Box: 130 Amazing, Animal-Free Lunches Kids and Grown-Ups Will Love! (Paperback)
I own both books and I much prefer the first edition (yellow) over this one, the second purple version. The first edition is much better in terms of organization. I find the second edition confusing to follow and highly dislike how the meal plans do not have the recipes immediately with it. The flow in this version is not good and I find it sitting on my shelf unused.
It is very confusing to have meal plans in the front not followed immediately by the recipes. I don't like that I have to keep going back and forth between the meal plans in the front of the book to the recipes in the back to see what is in it. It is very frustrating and I only reach for the first edition now.
that said, the book has a lot of great kid friendly and FAMILY friendly meals in it. I loved that it wasn't your typical vegan/vegetarian cookbook that had a lot of substitutes for meat in it, but instead shows you simple pairings of food to make a meal. We have not had a recipe in here yet that is not well loved.
