Have you finally found the perfect lunch box for your child, but now you're coming up short on lunch box ideas? Turn that lunch box frown upside down with Best Lunch Box Ever by Katie Sullivan Morford—a lunchtime guidebook chock full of clever, kids' lunch box ideas, planning strategies and 75 recipes to get your lunchtime wheels turning.
These healthy and creative lunch-packing strategies for moms and dads will keep away the lunch box blues, as they provide an arsenal of tips on buying in bulk, managing your time (or lack thereof), balancing portions and nutrition and a range of other, quick and simple solutions for packing wholesome, balanced meals kids will love.

Wait till they get their little hands on a waste-free lunch containing Cinnamon Wonton Crisps, Pita Pizzas, Easy Cheesy Thermos Beans, Parmesan Kale Chips, Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese, carrots dipped in Thai Peanut Dip, Crispy Applewiches, Banana Shakes and much, much more.
