A lunch box with a thermos can be very useful to pack a healthy lunch for school. It’s a great solution for both hot meals and cold foods.
Below are the top picks we’ve tested and liked, plus an explanation for why it makes it a top pick, depending on your child’s age and needs!
Which Lunch Box Keeps Food Hot?
To keep food hot, you’ll need a lunch box or container that is insulated, double-walled, and made of stainless steel. You can opt for an all-in-one design, like a lunch box with a built-in thermos, a kit with both a thermos and lunch box or a thermos container.
NOTE: A traditional lunch box made of plastic or stainless steel will not keep your child’s lunch hot, it needs to be made to keep foods hot (or cold).
