"[Vegan Lunch Box] helps to illustrate exactly what's gone wrong with the National School Lunch Program, and how this dire situation could quickly be remedied....Make any one of these meals and you're bound to agree that these are all lunches worth going to school for!" from the Foreword by Erik Marcus, host of the Vegan.com podcast and author of Vegan: The New Ethics of Eating and Meat Market: Animals, Ethics, and Money
"Parents rejoice! At last, the innovative lunches and delicious recipes made famous on Jennifer's Vegan Lunch Box blog are yours to enjoy in this charming and inspired cookbook. Fit for the picky and adventurous alike, Vegan Lunch Box will make your meals 5-star successes!" Dreena Burton, author of the best-selling cookbooks Vive le Vegan!, The Everyday Vegan, and Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan!
"Being a vegan kid just got a lot easier! The menus in Vegan Lunch Box make it easy to plan a balanced and nutritious lunch for your kids (or yourself!). The variety alone makes it worth having." Erin Pavlina, author of Raising Vegan Children in a Non-Vegan World
"Jennifer McCann's cookbook makes vegan cooking accessible and fun. It's informative but not stuffy, detailed yet concise, and the recipes are creative without being difficult. There are so many delicious, well put together options here, it's not only perfect for kids but for anyone who ever eats lunch!" Isa Chandra Moskowitz, author of Vegan with a Vengeance and Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World
"Destined to become a classic, this is the book vegan parents have been waiting for. And who knew? A vegan mom started a blog describing the lunches she made for her son for one school year, and it won the 2006 Bloggie Award for 'Best Food Blog' (not 'Best Vegetarian Food Blog,' but 'Best Food Blog,' period!) It inspired, delighted, and motivated not only vegan parents, but omnivores bored with their own lackluster lunches. This book will continue delighting with recipes that are as innovative, kid-pleasing, and healthful as they are delicious." Bryanna Clark Grogan, author of Nonna's Italian Kitchen, Authentic Chinese Cuisine for the Contemporary Kitchen, and 6 more vegan cookbooks
