Good Questions

Q: I just read about a food temperature study showing that kids' lunches don't stay chilled long enough to keep food safe. I have an insulated lunch bag and some Rubbermaid Blue Ice, but is that the safest way to keep my daughter's lunch cold?

By the way, Rubbermaid's website lists their Blue Ice packs and ice blankets as BPA free and here's their general advice about packing a safe lunch.
