Lunch box Safety

  • When buying a lunch box, choose ones that have room for a frozen drink or frozen block.
  • Keep the lunch cool in the fridge until you are ready to leave home.
  • Put an ice brick in it and put in the fridge when you arrive at work or at school.
  • During hot weather you may want to re-consider what you put in your child’s lunch box and use safer alternatives such as hard cheeses, canned tuna and sandwich spreads.
  • Discard any high risk foods such as sushi, meat, poultry or eggs if not eaten that day.
  • Reheat any leftovers until steaming before eating.
