DD went to Pizza Hut with her Dad last night and came home with a slice of pizza in a box to put in her lunchbox today.

I forgot to put the box in the fridge last night, so it was out on the kitchen table all night.

WIBU to put that slice of pizza in DD's lunchbox for her lunch today - she was really looking forward to, but I don't know if it would make her ill and whether it's risky.

Thanks

it's a cardboard takeaway box with large holes in the lid

You want to put 'takeaway' food in your dd's lunch box? Can you not make her a sandwich and warm the pizza up for her tea?

I wouldn't usually, but on a Friday the school is more lenient. She's at her Dad's for tea tonight

It'll be fine - put it in.

Sounds fine. Not sure why a sandwich is better than a slice of pizza.

Personally, I wouldn't. But I worry about these things. Whereas my mum will leave a joint of cooked meat out all night, and then eat it.

It will be fine, put it in, don't dissappoint her!

I'm not concerned with the fact it's pizza, just that I forgot to put in in the fridge last night

It will be sat out all day too. I wouldn't

Shinyshoes2 Fri 14-Oct-16 08:17:33

I would . Have done many times and still here to tell the tale
It's not like there were flies landing In and around it

Depends on the topping and how cold your kitchen is. If it's cheese and tomato I would. If it's chicken I wouldn't.

It'll be fine! I am normally a bit funny about food (stick to sell by dates religiously even though I know I'm probably being stupid) but I would eat that smile x

I would, as long as it has no meat on it. I always leave my pizza leftovers in box overnight & eat the next day.

NavyandWhite Fri 14-Oct-16 08:20:46

I wouldn't eat pizza that'd been out of the fridge overnight myself so wouldn't give it ds.

HermioneJeanGranger Fri 14-Oct-16 08:22:17

It's fine, I do it all the time when I have takeaway.

Ginslinger Fri 14-Oct-16 08:38:58

I'd eat it

Notso Fri 14-Oct-16 08:43:54

I would cold pizza is best at room temp, it's too cold from the fridge. Providing your house isn't roasting hot or has flies swarming around it or DD had said the chicken/ham/pepperoni on my pizza last night tasted weird.

BreconBeBuggered Fri 14-Oct-16 08:48:53

YABU., because I have no cold pizza and I want some for breakfast now. From this viewpoint, your DD won't forgive you if you don't put it in her lunchbox.

KoalaDownUnder Fri 14-Oct-16 08:50:09

I wouldn't.

It's been sitting at room temperature overnight, and then will be again for half a day in a lunchbox.

Not worth the gastro.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Fri 14-Oct-16 08:52:23

It'll be fine, she'll love it. 😄

mum2Bomg Fri 14-Oct-16 08:54:16

I wouldn't - binned a leftover Dominos this week as DH didn't fridge it angry

If it was summer where I grew up, then perhaps not. This time of year, this country, it'll be fine.

idontlikealdi Fri 14-Oct-16 08:57:58

I wouldn't because it's also now going to presumably sit in a sweaty lunch box until lunch time too.

Jellybean83 Fri 14-Oct-16 08:58:01

We eat cold (unrefridgerated) pizza all the time, but I never have meat on my pizza (DP does tho and he's still alive) so I think that's how I justify it as being ok to eat. We've never had any adverse effects so personally I would send it.
