Food safety is of paramount importance. Each day millions of children are away from home, receiving care from early childhood professionals. It is important to ensure our early childhood workforce understands the basics of food safety, especially since studies estimate that children receive 70% of meals while away from home.
Further, children under 4 years of age are 4.5 times more likely to acquire bacterial infections from food compared to adults – making safe food handling practices essential.
