During the chilly, snowy winter months, all my family craves are warm, comforting dishes. There’s something special about a hot bowl of soup on a freezing cold day. The same goes to school lunches. I’m always looking for new ideas to pack warm lunches for my kids when they head off to school.
A good thermos is a must-have lunchbox item in the winter! We love this 10 oz. Thermos brand thermos for packing warm foods in the lunchbox. Here’s a tip for packing hot foods:
- Fill the thermos with boiling water.
- Heat up the food you’re adding to thermos.
- Pour out water and add food.
Your food will stay hotter longer by prepping the thermos with hot water beforehand!
