Is this possible? I would like my 7 year old to be able to take a cooked baked potato to school some days in her packed lunch, does anyone do this? What's the best way to keep it warm if possible?

I bought my daughter an insulated lunchbox from amazon - search for Aladdin bento lunch box...

They are pretty expensive but not too bad compared to the price of school dinners, day after day!!

Importantly, they keep the food very warm and don't leak, we're happy with it smile

Thank you and will have a look on amazon. I had also thought about wrapping in tinfoil, does anyone know if this works?

Tinfoil would keep it warm for a while but maybe not enough til lunch
We have a stubby wide thermos I think it is designed for soup with its own spoon. That would hold half a nice jacket potato

Ooh I have a kids thermos I bought off amazon last year for soup. I tried to fit a baked potato in there but it was too big, I hadn't thought of half of one thank you!
