Although parents play a key role in ensuring that the food our family eats is safe, kids need to know about food safety too.
Here’s some things kids can do (along with the whole family):
Wash and Dry your hands before you make or eat a snack or meal.
Put back packs on the floor, not the counter (or desk or other eating surface). Same goes for purses, btw.
Put foods like milk, yogurt, lunch meat and eggs back in the refrigerator right away.
Use separate cutting boards for meats versus fruits and veggies.
Use ice packs in lunchboxes and picnic baskets. Throw away uneaten lunch box leftovers.
Some cool links and tools: (thanks to Keep Schools Safe pointing me to these)
