I am after ideas on how you pack school lunch and keep them cold?
I have been using an ice pack in an insulated lunch bag which keeps it cold but twice now the condensation leaked through and made dd bag all wet.
Would be much appreciated if you could share.
Also I prefer not to pack a frozen juice box and preferably not a frozen water bottle as I use a vacuum thermos for dd.
Another factor is weight. I couldn't believe how heavy dd bag was!

Could you wrap the ice brick in a cloth or paper towel?
I used to do that, but don't anymore because I can't be bothered.
We don't have a problem with excessive condensation?
Sometimes the lunchbox inside is damp but never leaks anywhere else.
Oh and yes, very heavy! No solution for that I'm afraid!

I don't bother with a nice brick or anything. In summer I usually include a frozen squeezy yoghurt/fruit purée to sort of keep it cooler.

Thanks! I think i will use the towel under the ice brick.
May also try what I found in Google search and there was a suggestion of soaking a sponge in water and putting in freezer then zip lock bag.

I bought a fridge to go for ds. They are great and are nice and cool all day in summer (when he keeps it closed)

Our school has fridges in the classrooms so lunches stay cool

Each classroom has a decent size fridge in it, we just have to make sure the kids lunch boxes are not enormous.
