Keeping Our Children's Lunches Safe

It’s back to school season and my family is excited to share with our daughter the start of Kindergarten. This is also the perfect time to highlight something that many children take for granted – Lunch Box and Lunchtime Food Safety!

Working in the food industry makes childcare even more challenging. We are more aware of the numerous recalls and hidden microbial challenges that surround us.  The “hot” or even “stinky” lunchbox that returns home after an 8 hour day at school screams to be cleaned!   Recently – the USDA and FoodSafety.gov have highlighted some quick reminders to ensure our kids are eating safe lunches and help PARENTS feel more comfortable.
