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. 

 

Lunch today is resourceful, but no less tasty. Here's Amanda with the details: 

I call this refrigerator chicken salad -- you take leftover chicken, pull it into pieces (cutting it would be too formal), rummage around the fridge for greens, radishes, and the like. Layer it all in containers, and spoon over salad dressing made by the babysitter. On the side, some whole grain bread, and a sliced persimmon for a little pop of color!

Sooo, Amanda--do you share with your child what's in the mix, or just wait for after-school commentary? Also, what kind of lunch pail? (forgive me if I missed that post!)

Erika, I don't really, but that's mostly because mornings are crazy. When I have my act together I write down the menu and put it in their lunchboxes. I use a mix of tiffin boxes and soft insulated lunch boxes like this: http://www.diapers.com...
