The kids are finally organized and excited about starting school. You let them pick out their favorite lunch box and backpack. Now it’s time to start thinking about what to pack them for lunch.
Good HouseKeeping recently conducted a comprehensive test of 43 lunch boxes and discovered that none of them were able to keep your child’s lunch at a safe temp and put children at risk of eating spoiled food.
“From the time your child leaves for school until midday, his/her lunch is likely unrefrigerated. And when perishables (such as cold cuts or sliced fruit) rise above fridge temperature, they remain safe to eat for only two hours.”
Even loaded with ice packs food is at risk of spoiling before lunch. But there are steps you can take to help preserve your child’s meal.
If you are looking for meal options that don’t have to be carefully chilled, check out some Good HouseKeeping‘s healthy and fun options.
