Packing Soup for Kindergartener

I've never worried before about packing soup in a thermos; it has always seemed really straightforward. My kindergartener has just requested miso soup for his lunch. I'd love to send some, but I'm nervous about sending a thermos full of hot soup for a little guy (fearing scalds).

Is it safe to pack it less than boiling, piping hot? Or should it cool down between 6:30 and 11 am enough to be pleasantly warm instead of scalding?

In my experience it should cool enough. Any of the thermal pots I have allow enough heat to escape so that the food is sufficiently cool by lunch. Why not try a test run on a weekend so you can see if it will work for you rather than take a chance with sending a hot liquid to school?
Hope this helps :0)

Not soup, but boiling hot liquids ought to be similar.. I packed tea in a thermos at 9:30 this morning and by 4:30 it was still steaming.
So perhaps not quite boiling, but still fairly hot.
