  • My son takes lunch almost every day, we have an insulated container that we put leftovers, beefaroni, ravioli, etc in I just heat it a little hotter than you would to eat it and it stays warm until lunch time.

  • When I taught kids could heat food in the microwave if they needed to, so I would see if that was the case. My mom packed me soups , stew, chili etc in a thermos, other stuff in tupperware that could be heated if I could. They do make insulated tupperware stuff now that keeps stuff warm, and there are also hot packs to throw in to keep the heat. You can do so much for lunches if they have microwave access.
