Tips for safely transporting food

Packing up baked goods and sweets in the car is pretty straightforward, just make sure the containers don’t get crushed. However, when it comes to traveling with foods that need to be kept hot or cold for safety reasons, things can be a bit more daunting. Here are a few handy tips we’ve found that could be very helpful this holiday season.

• Insulation is important for keeping cold things cold and hot things hot. It might be worth it to invest in some travel bags that can slide over your various containers. Cooking supply stores should offer plenty of options. Of course, Amazon is always your friend when it comes to finding what you need.

• Cold food needs to be kept below 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure you have plenty of ice packs ready to go.

• Hot foods should travel at or above 135 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature drops for an extended period of time, be sure to reheat it before serving.
