I try to pack a Hot Lunch for my son at least once a week. Just because you are packing doesn’t mean it has be to cold. When packing hot lunches including foods like soups, pasta, corn dogs, chicken nuggets or even a pizza pocket you should always pre-heat a thermos. To pre-heat simply fill it with boiling water. Use a hot pot, microwave or stove-top to boil your water then pour inside the container. Pour the water out and dry. Then fill it up with your hot food. To keep it hot don’t open again until lunch time.
We have done this with spagettiO’s, ramen noodles, chicken nuggets, fish sticks, corn, soup, corn dogs and more!
