Back to School Food Safety

With millions of Aussie kids heading back to school soon we thought it was a good idea to share a few simple tips that will help keep lunches safe and tasty.

The 4 most important tips to remember about packing school lunches:

  1. Always keep everything clean:  Hands, surfaces, utensils, fresh fruit and veggies, everything!
  2. Keep hot foods hot:  Use an insulated bottle for hot foods.
  3. Keep cold foods cold:  Use an insulated lunch box and frozen gel packs or a frozen drink to keep things cool until lunchtime (but not later).
  4. When you're done, throw it away:  Throw away used paper and plastic bags. And throw away any perishable leftovers.
