By Cara Hobday

  • Paperback
  • £6.99

About 4.6 million British children eat a packed lunch every day and each year more than 5.5 billion lunchboxes are packed in the UK. The UK's lunchbox industry is worth more than GBP4 billion a year.

If your child's packed lunch usually consists of a tired sandwich, a packet of potato crisps and a chocolate biscuit then this is the book for you! Every day parents around the globe face the usual lunchbox dilemmas: how do you keep coming up with tempting ideas, where do you find the time to make nutritious packed lunches and the hardest part of all - how do you get your children to eat and enjoy their lunches? This book takes the daily strain out of packing a lunchbox with over 50 recipe ideas for sandwiches and wraps to snacks and cakes, and even includes tips for getting your children to help prepare their own lunchboxes! Kids' Healthy Lunchbox also provides ingenious ways of adding healthy fruit and veg to a lunchbox without your kids noticing, to keep them fit and strong and provide all the energy they need for a busy afternoon of work and play.
