Essential Back-To-School Food Safety Tips
Sending your kids to school with homemade lunches can ensure that your children are eating nutritious foods. However, any number of circumstances can make those wholesome lunches a danger to your kids.
Temperature regulation for packed lunches is essential for the wellbeing of your children. If you intend to pack refrigerated items, make sure that they stay cold until it’s time for them to be eaten. Providing your children with insulated lunchboxes, which can keep contents cool for several hours, can help in ensuring the safety of their meals. For added protection, include a small ice pack that will help maintain appropriate food temperatures. It’s also important to remind your children to wash their hands thoroughly before each meal, including lunch, to help prevent the spread of infections.
