Food Hygiene

Food poisoning through undercooked and inappropriate storage of food affects thousands of people each year. This Food Hygiene lesson demonstrates to students how easily potentially harmful microbes on raw and undercooked food can transfer to humans.

Students act as chefs for the class and prepare a pretend chicken sandwich. They will literally see how far they have spread microbial contamination!

The Fridge Game can be used as a classroom game/demonstration to show students where food should be stored in the fridge to prevent cross contamination. This game is also on the student section of the website for students to play at home. In order to reduce the amount of photocopying required, the student handouts are also available in MS PowerPoint for whiteboard use.
