Healthy lunch box ideas for kids can be hard to come by. In this article, I review Katie Morford’s new lunch box cookbook.
Admittedly, I am on vacation and spending very little time thinking about the upcoming school year. However, I know when I return home, we’ll be well into August and the ‘get everyone ready for school’ tirade will begin.
New uniforms, clothes shopping (NOT my favorite thing to do), school supplies, and yes, lunch box ideas and supplies.
This year, I’ll be sure to consult with my son before I choose his lunch box (read this)!
Truly, though, it’s not the lunch box and baggies, containers and water bottles that challenge us 3 weeks into the school year…it’s the ‘what do I pack today??!‘ challenge.
My friend and colleague Katie Morford from Mom’s Kitchen Handbook has just released the cure to the lunch box blues–a lunch box cookbook filled with healthy lunch ideas for kids called Best Lunch Box Ever.
Not only is this book loaded with excellent homemade lunch ideas (for any age, really), what I like best is that it’s not just a book for moms–your kids will grab this book, look through it and tell you what they want in their lunch box. They may even decide to make their own lunch!
Seems like a win-win to me.
