Lunchboxes & Snacks that pack a powerful nutritional punch include Potato and Sweet Bell Pepper Tortilla Squares and Chickpea Bites. Soups & Fast Food provides quick fixes for when time is short-try a bowl of Pizza Soup; Noodles with Sesame Peanut Sauce; or Cornmeal and Sweetcorn Fritters. The fun recipes featured in Kids' Favorites means veggie kids don't have to miss out-treat them to Mushroom Barley Burgers or Bean and Vegetable Tacos.
