Food Sanitation and Safety Self-assessment Instrument for Family Day-Care Homes.
This self-assessment instrument for family day care providers is designed to help caregivers provide safe food to children. The eight sections of the instrument, presented in checklist format, concern: (1) personal hygiene; (2) purchasing and inspecting of food; (3) food storage; (4) kitchen equipment; (5) food preparation; (6) infant food preparation; (7) serving of food; and (8) facilities. Sanitation is considered to be the constant maintenance of hygienic conditions. The provider can be assured that food is safe up to the time it is served by implementing a sanitation and safety self-assessment program on a regular basis. (RH)
