My 3 year old has just started with packed lunches at nursery. They don’t put the lunch boxes in the fridge. She starts at 9 and has lunch 12:30. Will yoghurt or slices of cheese (to go with crackers) for instance, be ok un-refrigerated for over three hours? X

Yes , our children have the same where I work and nobody has ever been ill as a result
You can put an ice pack in and use an insulated lunch bag

You can get lunchfreezer bags they are insulated OR buy frube type yoghurts freeze it will keep everything else cool, kids take packed lunches to school and they are never in fridges ever

Cheese should be fine.
I used to freeze yoghourty things or if not possible a drink or similar and wrap up together which would keep it all cold

Some of them like the squashems say that they're ok out of the fridge for x amount of hours (think it's 6).

I sometimes used to freeze drinks if it was a hot day

Get the yoghurt tubes and freeze them. They will defrost in the bag ready for lunch and help keep everything else cool

Frubes are fine out of the fridge for about 6 hours.
