The Munch Lunchbox cookbook will help you with the lunchboxes for your kids every day.  Written by the Munch team – Anna Bordignon and Michelle Kitney, it’s all about easy, healthy, cost-effective ideas with a focus on natural ingredients. There are tips on how to have school lunches looking and tasting great even after knocking about in a school bag for a few hours! And it contains  information on litter-less lunches. Symbols quickly give key recipe information – is the recipe gluten-free, no cook, does it contain dairy, nuts or eggs, can you freeze it?

The beautiful photography throughout the book is by Belinda Pope Photography.
