Hi I got my LO ( 1yr) into one of the famous and expensive day cares and found out they do not warm food for babies and no microwave. They give food and milk but cold ones -refrigerated milk and cold foods - pasta etc. For home-brought foods, either need to be kept at room temp or refrigerate. Now I am in fix. I am worried about coming winters. I know people here are habitual of eating cold foods. My LO For Milk and Indian foods, I am confused how to keep food warm and keep it manageable for them and us. For ex - Now, For her khichadi + yogurt and snack/fruit all in 1 box with partitions and label it for them on how to serve. As they might not know that khichadi has to be given with yogurt to LO. If I use thermos for khichadi, yogurt has to stay separate and then lot of containers. Some foods - daal + rice - if both warm, they taste better. Solids food is still okay... Now milk is something that I do not think she will drink cold/refrigerated. What is your experience? Also I see so many kids/colored flasks, soup thermos.. not sure if they really work. Any suggestions? How do you pack indian foods for your daycares in absence of microware?
