Jenny Mollen—New York Times bestselling author, media darling, and Instagram personality behind @dictatorlunches—takes the stress out of packing lunch with this fun and creative collection of lunchbox ideas and healthy recipes that are sure to please even your pickiest child.
“Sid, or, as I lovingly refer to him, ‘the dictator,’ rarely finishes any meal, and that’s okay. My goal isn’t to stuff him like a foie gras goose, it’s just to expose him to things and, truth be told, to entertain him. That is how empires are won and salad eaters are made: brick by brick, seaweed snack by seaweed snack.” —Jenny Mollen
