Food flasks are great to take hot and cold food out and about. When venturing to unknown destinations can become difficult when coeliacs are simply not catered for.
Gluten Free Meals Hassle Free
Food flasks offer our coeliac children a hot meal at the end of the day, at the gym at a club, on the ferry or train journey etc. A food flask will store food hot for at least 4 hours, a top tip is to pour boiling water into the flask for a few minutes to heat the insides before pouring the food)
School lunches with a flask
It seems to be a great idea to offer you child something other than a sandwich on a cold day. Left over dinners can be eaisily heated in the morning and will be still hot at lunch time.
Some schools may object to a flask being taken to school as there is a risk the food is too hot and may take too long to cool dow, along with the risk of burning! Our advice would be to check with your school before investing
