how to pack a lunch box and keep cold food cold and hot food hot

One of the most common questions I get about packing lunches with my EasyLunchbox System is, “How do you keep the hot food hot, and the cold food cold?”

And, “Will kids eat “hot food” cold, or at least… at room temp?” (Yes, most will, especially when they’re hungry! You may have to do a little bit of trial and error, but many recipes that your child enjoys hot, will be equally enjoyed cold or at room temp. Often there is so much talking, etc. at lunch time, even if a meal is served hot, it quickly cools yet still gets eaten … Read on for some tips about using a thermos for foods like soup or chili that are best served warm.)

► ► If you’ve been struggling with these lunch-packing dilemmas, read through a recent conversation from my EasyLunchboxes Facebook wall,  and hopefully, our discussion there will answer your questions :)

Here’s most of it -

This is a question I’ve been asked a lot as well. I live in Washington State, and our trip to school takes all of 5 minutes, so food safety is not as much of a concern for me as it would be for someone whose child who took a long bus ride to school somewhere with more extreme temperatures – keeping my kidlets’ food hot or cold is more for their preference than to prevent spoilage. But even on our coldest winter days our Thermos containers have kept their soups hot, and ice packs in insulated lunch carriers have kept things safely cold enough. For items they prefer very cold, I add frozen reusable ice cubes right next to the food. Or cut water-filled pillow ice sheets into perfect fit cold packs [HERE]

Keep lunches extra cool by tucking these reusable ice cubes into your EasyLunchbox containers
