The nation’s school children are returning to classrooms in droves this week. Kids and parents pack millions of school lunches daily, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture has released information about how to keep those lunches safe.
In addition, the folks from the partnership for Food Safety Education are hosting a “Home Food Safety Mythbusters” webinar to help kids stay safe when preparing snacks and other meals after school. During the webinar, experts will present the science basis behind food safety myths and facts and help to shed light on food safety behaviors of kids.
The webinar was created for National Food Safety Education Month and will take place Thursday, Sept. 5, from 1-2 p.m. Eastern Time. Continuing education credit is offered from the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
