Peer pressure can be especially tricky in the lunch room. How best to feel better after your meal has been mocked? Sometimes confoming seems like the best way; it's easier. And then someone else, and someone else does the same. What was once an eclectic table that proudly represented a collection of cultures is covered in sandwiches. A relatable celebration of heritage and learning from others.
Publisher Summary
What happens when a child's favorite packed lunch is met with disparaging comments at the school lunch table?

In a classroom of sandwiches, four students stand out with their homemade, culturally-specific lunches. But before they can dig in and enjoy their favorite foods, their lunches are spoiled by scrunched noses and disgusted reactions from their sandwich-eating classmates.

Follow each of the four students as they learn to cope with their first "lunch box moments" in this picture book that encourages empathy and inspires all readers to stand up for their food! Inspired by the "lunch box moments" of four acclaimed chefs, Ray Garcia, Preeti Mistry, Mina Park, and Niki Russ Federman, this heartwarming story reminds us all that one's food is a reflection of self and an authentic celebration of culture.
