Cool Lunch Idea

It’s that time of year when parents head into stores with their child’s school supply list.

Here’s something you might want to put in the cart that’s not on the list: extra ice packs.

A study published in the journal Pediatrics found that children’s school lunches are rarely kept cold enough to prevent food-borne illnesses. The authors recommend adding extra ice packs and freezing food items such as juice and water to keep other foods cold.

Make sure your child’s lunch sack is insulated as well.
