Keeping Lunches Cool

Lil Tip: Cool Lunches

When you send your tot off to school with a sack lunch, your goal is to give your babe the best eats possible.

While those cute lunch totes may appear to do the job, use an old baby toy for extra insurance.

Toss old teething rings (cleaned off of course!) into the freezer. When it's time to send princess off to school, grab one of the iced toys and place it into her lunch box. She'll be pleasantly surprised when her yogurt and apple slices are just as chilled as they are at home.

Yeah. I'm not sure my 8 year old will be impressed when I sneak frozen baby toys into his lunch.

The thing is, these are BABY toys and the child will know it. I found a lot of cute freezer packs out there- my 5 year old has one shaped like a soccer ball that he can't pierce and works so well. Don't want them to be made fun of with a baby teether in school :?
