    Yes. It is for food to cover the full day. I would assume before/after school care may also need more food packed too. I would do that in a different box.

    I would check with the school. Ours prefer separate boxes for recess, lunch and crunch & sip. I prefer seperate too, as my DD is likely to pick at everything at recess and make a big mess of it and have nothing left at lunch!!

    Oh, and we use the Yumbox here. The snack one for recess and the original or panino for lunch. Plus a small systema for crunch and ship (or just a whole apple/piece of fruit not in a container). I've also just got a pack it lunch bag that has ice gel in the lining... You keep it in the freezer until you use it and it is meant to keep things chilled for 10 hours. I hope it works in this stinking heat!

    Our planet box does fruit break, lunch and recess plus has outside pockets I put an apple in that he can eat on the way home from school - he always eats recess and lunch in it correct order , I just explained what was to be eaten and when and we've never had a problem! I put his fruit break in one of the stainless steel containers that comes with it so he just brings that out to his desk to eat , at recess and lunch he just brings out the whole bag no problems

    I've checked with the school and the recess and crunch & sip are supposed to be separate. I did a practice run yesterday and it wasn't too hard and DS happily ate most of the food in the lunch box and the crunch & sip

    ETA - ham and cheese on rye wrap, lightly toasted; rice crackers and popcorn, capsicum and grapes.
    Morning tea was banana and a mandarin, crunch and sip was apple and apricot.

    Today's lunchbox - this is still a practice run... I've got cream cheese and smoked salmon on rye bread; rice crackers, oat & honey snack bar, carrot & capsicum, grapes and strawberries.
    For crunch & sip it's apple and carrot, and morning tea is a banana but I think I'll add something else to morning tea when he's actually going to school.
