How to pack a food jar for your preschooler? 

The best way to pack a food jar for your preschooler is using an insulated stainless steel thermos. This will help keep the food warm and fresh. You can also use a regular mason jar, but our Mira food jar will keep the food hotter or colder for longer. Fill the thermos with hot water and let it sit for a few minutes to heat up. Then, pour out the water and place the food in the thermos. Close the lid and make sure it's tightly sealed. The thermos will keep the food warm up to 5 hours.  


Why do you need a Mira food jar in your day-to-day life? 

Mira thermos food jars are built to last. They come in different sizes for different needs, and there are endless variations of food that you can pack in them. They're simple to clean with just warm soapy water - which is a plus when you're on the go. Plus, they have a wide mouth opening that makes it easy to eat out of. And the thermos feature means that your food will stay at a consistent temperature - hot or cold - for hours. So, if you're looking for a durable and reliable thermos food jar, Mira is the way to go. 



Mira food jars are a great way to pack and save your child's lunch. Not only do they keep the food warm or cold, but they also help preserve it, so it doesn't spoil. This makes them perfect for multiple healthy food options for your preschooler, and you can find our food jars in different sizes and colors. So you can be sure your child's lunch will stay fresh all morning!
