Winter warmer - Hot food for school Lunch box June 21, 2015 08:00

Pack hot food for your kids this winter using an insulated Thermal.  We use LunchBots insulated Thermal and we are loving it. This amazing product able to keep food hot for 5 hours. When I pick my kids up from school. The lunch is still warm. 

Tips for how to use the insulated thermal:
1) Fill up the thermal with boiling hot water and allow it to sit for 10 minutes.
2) Empty water and fill the thermal with your hot food and secure the lid tight.                                 3) Place it in an insulated lunch bag and send it to school. I am using So Young insulated lunch         bag which fit it perfectly and still have plenty of room available. I usually will include the utensil,     fruits and water bottle.

Here is some hot food idea :

  • Pasta 
  • Meatballs
  • Fried rice
  • Soup
  • Fried noodle
  • Chicken nuggets
  • Ravioli
  • Lasagna
  • Chicken carbonara
