Overview

Lunch, whether it is to be eaten at home, in school, in the office or while out and about, constitutes a significant part of our diet. Yet many people, and parents in particular, have difficulty creating interesting and delicious alternatives to the boring sandwiches or unhealthy snacks that form many packed lunches. This book offers interesting and imaginative ideas to act as an inspiration, both for parents making their children's packed lunches and indeed for their own lunches. Advice on nutritional balance and the different food groups is offered, as is information for those with various allergies and intolerances. There are suggestions for general lunchbox menus and specific vegetarian lunchboxes — as well as ideas for those participating in a lot of sport. Recipes are also offered for many of the suggestions, all of which are suitable for those with minimal cooking skills. An inspiration for anyone who wants to make sure that lunches will never be boring again!
