Amanda's Kids' Lunch from Food52

It's been damn hot in New York, so I've been packing lighter salads for my kids' camp lunches. For instance: this beet salad with sliced cucumber, and a hard-boiled egg topped with leftover green sauce from a dinner party and pickled onions. To keep my kids' lives in balance, a chocolatey chocolate chip cookie was in order.

But how how how do you keep the food cold!! Food safe temps are a tough thing to maintain...sigh...

I'm a bit European about these matters -- my kids get to school at 9 and eat lunch at 11, so I figure the cold water bottle in the lunch box keeps the temp relatively cool. But you can definitely add an ice pack if you're nervous.

Looks delicious. Amanda, what do you typically feed your kids for breakfast? Just out of curiosity.

My husband, Tad, is in charge of breakfast, and he usually serves them toast with butter and jam, or granola.
