A lack of hygiene in the kitchen can have serious consequences.  Bacteria can start to grow and spread.  This could cause food poisoning, which can be very dangerous.  Why donít you work through the activity sheet with your child to help them keep their cooking clean?

Wash your fruit and vegetables

We all need to eat fruit and vegetables as they are really good for us and have lots of health benefits.  There are many different ways you can eat them.  But however you are cooking your fruit or vegetables it is important that you have washed them properly.  They must be washed in cold water and you can use a brush to guarantee that all the soil has been removed.  Home grown vegetables need even more cleaning before they are cooked.
