Packing school lunches so they go the distance
The start of the new school year often falls during the hottest months of Summer, which makes it a good time to talk about food safety. As most schools can’t provide fridges for students to store their food in, it is important to pack lunches in a way that keeps food safe throughout the day. Food that hasn’t been prepared or stored correctly can cause food poisoning. This is because when food is not handled properly the harmful bacteria in it can multiply, causing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
