IF youre packing lunch for your kid, chances are it will end up at unsafe temperatures before its eaten. Thats according to a Texas study that tested more than 700 preschoolers lunch packs and found less than two percent of the meats, vegetables and dairy products were in the safe temperature zone. It was a shock when we discovered that more than 90 percent of the perishable items in these packed lunches were kept at unsafe temperatures, said Fawaz Almansour, a doctoral student at the University of Texas in Austin. His study, released on Monday in the journal Pediatrics, is the first to check how the food that kids bring to school is doing about an hour and a half before lunchtime. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, perishable foods kept between 40 degrees and 140 degrees Fahrenheit (4 to 60 degrees Celsius) for more than two hours are no longer safe to eat.
