This book is awesome! I love the fresh ideas for school lunch and the revamps of old ideas. Even if you have the most picky eater you can find a recipe in this book! Affordable and healthy meals. I liked her lists of things like cheapest healthy foods. I have a six year old daughter who is a great eater and there are definitely a couple recipes I don't think she would touch, but overall practical, simple, food she will eat. This book should be a staple in every mom's collection.
