Did you know?: 

Did you know? 1-2 teaspoons of salt ingested by a 25-lb. child can cause irritability, lethargy, and possibly seizures. More than 1½ tablespoons can be lethal.

Choking Prevention: 

Choking Prevention Every 5 days, a child in the U.S. dies from choking on food. Foods most commonly choked on: Hot dogs sliced in rounds Whole grapes Hard candy Nuts

Choking Prevention: 

Choking Prevention Items unsafe for children under age 4: smaller than 1¼ inch circle OR smaller than 2¼ inches long purchase small parts tester at toy or baby store Children should be seated and under adult supervision during meals and snacks.

Choking Prevention: 

Choking Prevention Dangerous foods for children under age 6: Firm, smooth, or slippery foods that slide down throat before chewing: - hot dog rounds - hard candy - large pieces of fruit - peanuts - whole grapes - cherries with pits Small, dry, hard foods difficult to chew & easy to swallow whole: - small pieces of raw carrot, celery, or other raw hard vegetables - nuts and seeds - chips, pretzels, popcorn Sticky or tough foods that do not break apart easily: - spoonfuls of peanut butter - chunks of meat - raisins and other dried fruits - chewing gum - marshmallows

Choking Prevention: 

Choking Prevention Dangerous objects for children under age 6: Coins, button-cell batteries Buttons (loose as well as those attached to clothing) Deflated or broken balloons Pencils, crayons, and erasers Pen and marker caps Rings, earrings Nails, screws, staples, safety pins, tacks, etc. Small toys, such as tiny figures or toys with small parts Balls or marbles Holiday decorations, including lights, tinsel, or toy-like ornaments Small stones Damaged or loose nipples on pacifiers or bottles

Choking Prevention: 

Some foods can be made safer: Hot dogs Cut lengthwise and then into small pieces Whole grapes Cut into quarters Raw carrots Cooked until slightly soft, then chop finely or cut into thin strips Peanut butter Spread thinly on crackers Mixed with applesauce and spread thinly on bread Choking Prevention

Hand Washing: 

Hand Washing Did you know? 20% of consumers do NOT wash hands before preparing food.

Hand Washing: 

Staff and children MUST follow hand washing guidelines: Use sink designated ONLY for hand washing Use soap and warm (100˚F) running water Lather hands with soap up to the elbows Rub hands together for 20 seconds Wash backs of hands, wrists, between fingers, and under fingernails Use a fingernail brush if necessary Rinse hands under warm running water Dry hands with paper towel or air dryer Turn off running water with a paper towel, not bare hands Hand Washing

Hand Washing: 

Hand Washing Staff and children shall wash their hands when: Preparing, handling, or serving food (including bottles) Feeding an infant Eating, drinking, or smoking Changing diapers Using the bathroom Assisting a child in the bathroom Sneezing, coughing, and wiping runny noses Setting the table or sitting down to eat Handling pets or other animals Coming in contact with body fluids

Safety in the Kitchen: 

Why is food safety a concern? 76 million cases of foodborne illness yearly commonly referred to as “food poisoning” 5,000 deaths related to foodborne illnesses yearly What is a foodborne illness? Often referred to as “the flu” Infected food may show NO signs of spoilage Common causes of foodborne illness: Poor personal hygiene Cross-contamination Abuse of time/temperature relationship Safety in the Kitchen

Personal Hygiene: 

Staff should: Bathe daily & shampoo hair frequently Wear hair restraint Wear fresh laundered work clothes/uniforms & aprons Keep fingernails clean, trimmed, and unpolished Not wear artificial nails Not wear jewelry, with exception of plain wedding band Wash hands correctly & frequently Wash hands before putting on gloves or changing into a new pair Change gloves with each new task Wear gloves at all times if bandaged wound on hands Not touch ready to eat food with bare hands Stay away from food when feeling ill Personal Hygiene


Cross-Contamination 3 Types of Cross Contamination: Hand to Food Good personal hygiene Proper handwashing Single-use gloves Food to Food Raw foods stored below cooked foods & ready-to-eat foods Fresh produce washed before peeling or serving raw Raw meat and raw fruits/vegetables NOT touching nor prepared on the same surface Equipment to Food Wiping cloths sanitized Reusable towels used only for sanitizing equipment surfaces – not for drying hands, utensils, etc. Equipment sanitized Knives, cutting boards, food contact surfaces

Washing Dishes: 

Washing Dishes Food scraped from plates, utensils, & equipment Dishes washed: 3-compartment sink Wash Rinse Sanitize Heat: 171˚F water for at least 30 seconds Solution: ¾ to 1½ Tbsp. of liquid chlorine bleach + 1 gallon water Dishwasher Dishes allowed to air-dry

Four Steps for Food Safety: 

Four Steps for Food Safety CLEAN SEPARATE COOK CHILL


CLEAN Wash hands after using the bathroom, changing diapers, or handling pets. Wash hands, working surfaces, and utensils after touching raw meat or poultry. Raw meat, poultry, and eggs can contain dangerous bacteria. To keep bacteria from spreading, wash anything that comes in contact with these raw foods.


CLEAN Dishcloths/sponges should NOT be rinsed and reused after cleaning up areas where uncooked meat has been handled millions of bacteria form in just a few hours use paper towels and discard immediately Plastic tablecloths/placemats wash with clean dishcloths and hot soapy water disinfect with mixture of ¼ cup liquid chlorine bleach and 1 gallon water allow to air-dry Equipment clean after every use cutting boards (plastic, non-porous, acrylic, and wooden)


SEPARATE Use separate cutting board for fresh produce and a separate one for raw meat, poultry, and seafood. Never place cooked food back on the same plate or cutting board that previously held raw food. To prevent juices from raw meat, poultry, or seafood from dripping onto other foods in the refrigerator, put raw foods in sealed containers or plastic bags and place on trays on the lowest shelf in the refrigerator. Never defrost food at room temperature. Food should be thawed in the refrigerator, in cold water, or in the microwave.


COOK Foods are properly cooked when they are heated for a long enough time and at a high enough temperature to kill bacteria that can cause foodborne illness. You can become sick anytime from 20 minutes to 6 weeks after eating food with some types of harmful bacteria. Bacteria grow from 1 to 1 million in only 4 hours.


COOK Use a food thermometer to make sure foods are cooked to the safe internal temperature. Roasts & steaks – 145˚F Ground beef – 160˚F Whole chicken or turkey – 180˚F Leftovers – 165˚F Processed ready-to-eat foods – 140˚F Place thermometer in the thickest part of most foods, away from bone and fat. Clean thermometer after each use.


Temperature Danger Zone 41˚F – 140˚F Less than 4 hours to avoid foodborne illness Food should NOT be removed from refrigerator until 20 minutes before serving. COOK

Keep Hot Foods Hot! Keep Cold Foods Cold! : 

Keep Hot Foods Hot!KeepCold FoodsCold! 140˚F DANGER 41˚F


CHILL Cooked food needs to go into the refrigerator while it is still hot. It is NOT safe to cool it on the counter. pour into shallow pans, cut large food cover loosely stainless steel cools faster than plastic stir frequently document temperatures cover food tightly and label when it reaches 41˚F To prevent bacteria, refrigerate or freeze perishables, prepared foods, and leftovers within 4 hours or less.


CHILL Temperatures during cooling process: from 140°F to 70°F within 2 hours from 70°F to 41°F within 4 hours if food has not reached 70°F within 2 hours, it MUST be immediately reheated to 165°F for 15 seconds Refrigerator should not be overstuffed. Cold air needs to circulate to keep food safe.

How low will it go?: 

How low will it go? How long would it take for the temperature to drop to a safe level if you were to refrigerate an 8-inch stock pot of steaming chicken soup? Q:

How low will it go?: 

How low will it go? A: 24 hours! Hot food should be placed in shallow containers in layers less than 3 inches deep.

Dry Storage Area: 

Dry Storage Area 50˚F - 70˚F FIFO = First In, First Out Purchase date written on new foods Newer foods moved to back Older foods moved to front Foods at least 6 inches off the floor Clean, dry, well-ventilated area Dry ingredients in containers with tight-fitting lids NO dented cans, broken packages, signs of pests All foods labeled and dated NO chemicals stored near food

Cold Storage Area: 

Cold Storage Area Thermometer 41˚F or lower in all areas allows for maximum circulation FIFO Foods covered, labeled, and dated Ready-to-eat foods above raw meats

Frozen Storage Area: 

Frozen Storage Area Thermometer 0˚F or lower in all areas allows for maximum circulation FIFO Foods covered, labeled, and dated Frozen products frozen until ready to cook
