It is very important to understand that germs such as E. coli, campylobacter and salmonella enter the kitchen through our hands, raw foods and through our pets. If we’re not careful enough, they can rapidly spread through various food contact surfaces and materials used in the kitchen such as cutlery, food processor, grinder, etc. Dubai Municipality and other International food safety organizations have recommended basic food safety measures to keep away the risks of improper food handling at home.

The workshops will reinforce these consumer food safety measures and increase awareness about
• How to pack and store food safely in fridge, e.g one needs to separate the leftovers before storing them, similarly food should be refrigerated only when steaming stops. Do not overcrowd the fridge and leave space between containers for cool air to circulate.
• Role of packaging: Right packaging minimizes food wastage and protects food from contamination. It also regulates water or moisture content in the food keeping it fresh
• how important is it to read the labels on food packaging and ensure it clearly indicates the product instructions and usage symbols

Kidville members and non-members can guarantee their participation by registering at any Kidville location.
