Lunch Lady is a magazine where parenting is not taken too
seriously but a balanced approach to family life is. Colourful,
thoughtful and full-of-cheek, it reminds parents to keep things in
perspective and have fun. It's a beautifully printed kitchen
keepsake full of recipes, inspiring family stories, photography,
art + kids cooking ideas and funny relatable opinion pieces about
the ups and downs of raising children.
Creative Director (and mum of 2) Lara Burke and Editorial Director (and mum of 3) Louise Bannister are magazine makers by trade. Their first printed success was frankie magazine, a title they co-founded and produced from 2004 - 2014. Other successful titles they created include Smith Journal and SPACES. In 2014 the duo started an independent publishing company, We Print Nice Things. Shortly after stumbling across the Lunch Lady blog, originally created by photographer and cook (and mum of 2) Kate Berry, the trio teamed up to create Lunch Lady magazine - a quarterly publication about food and family. In June, 2017 Kate left Lunch Lady and Lara and Louise stepped in to become Lunch Lady's full-time editors.
