How to cook food safely

Created by BabyCenter

Bad or stale food can make you sick. Try to cook fresh meals every day. Keep your cooking and eating area clean and store food in a cool, dry place.

  • Cook all meat and chicken well, until it has no pink bits.

  • Cook eggs well, until they are firm. Boil milk to kill any germs.

  • If you get your food from food stalls, select stalls with clean work areas. Make sure that the stall you choose is popular, so that you can be sure that food has not been sitting out for too long and has been safe for others.

  • Wash your hands with soap before you prepare meals, after using the toilet and after handling animals.

  • Wash all dishes and cooking areas with soapy water to get rid of any food remains.

If you have sores or cuts on your hands, keep them clean and covered with a clean cloth.

Keep animals away from the cooking area. Animals can spread germs and make you sick.
