When I’m building my lunches, often I’ll turn to a few lunch cookbooks on my shelf to help me think up new ideas other than the usual leftovers. Here are some of my favorite family friendly lunch cookbooks:

The Best Homemade Kids’ Lunches on the Planet: Make Lunches Your Kids Will Love with More Than 200 Deliciously Nutritious Meal Ideas – by Laura Fuentes

Laura Fuentes is the founder of MOMables.com, a lunch meal planning website that helps parents make fresh school lunches their kids will love. Her meal plans do the brainstorming and strategy for you, so that you can focus on all the other details that matter in the morning! After starting her successful business, she wrote this cookbook, building on all the ideas that she had gleaned from putting out a healthy weekly meal plan to her subscribers, and being a mom of 3 kids herself!

Weelicious Lunches: Think Outside the Lunch Box with More Than 160 Happier Meals – by Catherine McCord

We love Catherine McCord’s bright and happy recipe website Weelicious – featuring healthy recipes for the family. She covers food for babies, toddlers, school lunches, and family meals, and her colorful and flavorful style is front and center in her Weelicious Lunches cookbook!

The Just Bento Cookbook: Everyday Lunches To Go – by Maki Itoh was one of the original food bloggers, focusing on Japanese cooking and bentos – the fun, well designed Japanese lunch box. Her cookbook is a great extension of the breadth of bento ideas on her blog, and is useful for building a great lunch for both kids and adults.
