We are enjoying learning about food this term.
We have learnt all about healthy eating, the five food groups, different nutrients, the digestive track and where foods come from.
Today we learnt about food safety and storage. We learnt about “use by” dates, “best before” dates and where to store food safely. It is important to handle food safely and store it in the correct places to avoid accidents and any risks of food poisoning.
We watched these two presentations and discovered lots of interesting facts about food safety.
Here is Ebony and Ava looking at the “use by” and “best before” dates on milk, fruit puree, yoghurt and two minute noodles.
What did you learn about food labels and food safety?

Where do you store certain foods in your kitchen?
