DON’T FORGET TO KEEP FOOD SAFE!

Keeping food safe is important FOR GOOD HEALTH too! Here are some simple tips to keep your kid’s lunchbox safe:

  • Put a frozen drink bottle in the lunchbox
  • Use an insulated lunchbox to help keep lunches cool
  • Wash your hands with soap before preparing your kids lunch and teach your kids to do the same before they eat
  • Teach your kids to check if their lunch still feels cold before they tuck in
  • Perishable foods like meats, dairy or cut up fruit or vegetables should be thrown out if not eaten that day.
