Keeping Kids Safe: A Guide for Safe Food Handling & Sanitation for Child Care Providers.
Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA), Washington, DC.
Because children under age 5 are susceptible to food-borne illnesses and children in diapers present special sanitation and health problems, food safety and sanitation are emerging as important issues for child care providers. This booklet is designed to give providers and parents a quick and easy reference for food safety and sanitation. The first part of the booklet provides an overview of sanitation, covering handwashing, disinfecting, and safe diapering. The second part presents food safety basics for babies, covering safe handling of bottles, breast milk, and baby food. The third part of the booklet presents food safety basics for children in the areas of safe food handling, cooking, cleaning, cooling and refrigeration, storing leftovers, and safely handling leftovers. This section also includes food safety for field trips. A handwashing poster and refrigerator storage chart are included. The booklet concludes with a list of local and federal resources and related organizations. (HTH)
