Give your food an eco-makeover! This make-and-do book contains 16 ideas for tasty and healthy lunches and picnics which at the same time highlight a range of ethical issues around sourcing food. In preparing lunchtime and picnic snacks, these activities encourage the use of seasonal, locally sourced and fairtrade products as well as encouraging children to consider how their lunch is packaged to minimise resources. Photos and step-by-step guides show children how to make appealingly tasty yet nutritious food including bean burgers, pizza pods, popcorn, lemonade and vegetable crisps as well as their own handy packaging.

Review quote

This book is easy to understand, has step by step guides to explain it all and is full of healthy child-friendly easy to make snacks. My daughter wants more of these fun activities to do!" The Green Familia This is the book to help you and the children give what you eat an eco-makeover!" Lovereading4kids This is a wonderful book and very topical. It really supports the emphasis on healthy eating but in a fun way. The recipes are laid out in a clear, easy to follow fashion and I love the ideas for packaging the food to make it attractive - The book is beautifully and appealingly presented and is guaranteed to appeal to children. This would be a great book for every child and especially those who take packed lunches to school. Good for teachers too.A"
