Warm, tasty lunches
When packing a hot lunch for school, there are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind so that food stays contained and warm. Start by investing in a high-quality stainless steel insulated thermos. Pre-warm the container by filling it with boiling water, and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Then empty and dry the thermos right before packing it with the hot food. If you’re packing something that has a crisp coating (such as chicken nuggets or pizza rolls), place a paper towel in the bottom of the thermos to keep it from getting soggy. And, don’t forget to pack a spoon or fork!
