Your kids lunch

What do you pack for your child's lunch?

How does it not go bad sitting out for hours?



My DD eats pb&j everyday because I would rather her not get food poisoning from unkept food.



Just wondering..

my son usually eats lunch at school since he gets free lunch. occasionally they will serve something he doesn't like so he will bring his own lunch. its always pb&j or ham and cheese sandwich with a piece of fruit. never done anything special with his lunch. just put it in his lunchbag and he eats 3 hours after getting to school. his lunch has never gone bad in that short amount of time,

 We like PBJ or ham and cheese with mustard. I have tried other things but that is what he likes. We put an ice pack in there.

Insulated lunch box with ice packs or a thermos.

Ice pack for stuff that could go bad inserted in the lunch box......no worries.  They make gel paks and ice packs for just this purpose.

1 mom liked this

 I put a frozen bottle of water in with her lunch. It keeps her food super cold and she can drink the water with it

I have food certification and any food that is not keep at 40 degrees or lower after 4 hours of being at room temperature is susceptible to food borne illnesses.

We homeschool so it's not an issue. I would probably be a bit paranoid if they did though. I'm super paranoid about food going bad.

Me too, that's why she eats a pb&j everyday. I also live in Florida so some areas depending on where stuff is kept can get warm quickly
