      Default Keeping the lunch cold at school



      Hi,


      I also pack lunch for my daughter and I use a small flexible icepack. I found this at walmart for $1 or so. You can find them in the school section before school starts and after that they are in the section with the coolers and other lunch bags near sporting goods. Hope this helps Jenn

      You can buy juice boxes on sale and freeze them. By lunch time, it will bethawed so he can drink it and lunch is kept cool. Or, you can make your own ice pack by combining water with a couple of drops of food coloring and a bit of rubbing alcohol. Double bag it in ziplock baggies and freeze. It will be frozen but not solid.

      My daughter found the cold packs that you freeze and put it the luchbox. The lunchbox is somewhat insulated, so these work perfectly. They were just 99cents per pak ( we use 2 ) at the 99cent store. He likes them because they are the "Cars" theme.

      We do it several ways. One way is to buy the smaller ice pack, the one we bought was about $2 and we are still using it after 15 years. One that my husband does is that to cut prices he makes koolaide (doesn't understand that the 10 pounds he gained could be because of this) but he freezes the koolaide inpop bottles and then puts his lunch on top. Some times my girls have to take a lunch that they can throw away everything so we freeze whatever drink they take. It keeps the lunch cold until they eat but is thawed out to drink. Becky

      Blue Packs. Lunch box size are I think under $1 at Walmart. They are in the sporting good section. They last a long time and work very well. Patti

      I used to freeze the juice boxes, so it would act as an ice pack in

      the lunch box. I also invested in a few of the $1.00 hard ice packs

      to keep on hand in the freezer. The small plastic Gerber juice

      bottles worked really well for "on the fly" ice packs, too.



      We would pack the lunch the night before, and keep it in the fridge

      over night in the lunch box, so that would be cold for a little bit

      as well. We got insulated lunch boxes, but they weren't anymore

      expensive than the character ones. Then add the frozen juice box in

      the morning, or an ice pack, and send them on their way.

      you usually can find insulated lunch boxes at garage sales. I bring my lunch to work and have some of the gel ice packs that I use every day. You can also freeze sandwiches or the bread to make tham withand they will thaw by lunch time. Some people freeze the drink to keep lunches cold.
