Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration. 

The first school lunch back from winter vacation brings a sampling of everything: smoked mackerel salad, beets and horseradish, crackers; gingersnaps and medjool dates. And in the spirit of looking forward in 2013, there's not a Christmas cookie in sight.

I really enjoy this column. My little one is starting school this year and these ideas are fantastic! Now if I could only get my husband into eating this good, things will get even better. Thank you so much for sharing this part of your life with us!!

Amanda, is what's shown in the photo what actually goes into the kids' lunch boxes? If so, I'm amazed at how little they eat. My sons at that age, had I put in front of them for lunch what's shown above, would have eaten it and then asked for the main course . . . . ;o)

Yes, it is, although I added more crackers. I've actually been cutting back on the amounts because they were coming home with half eaten lunches -- because their school lunchtime is so short they never had time to get through it. That or they're very chatty...
