Food Hygiene (Key Stage Three)

From the Chilled Food Association, this resource helps children to think about hygiene and in particular the importance of washing hands. The materials are aimed at STEM ambassadors but are readily adapted for use by teachers in the classroom.

The materials consist of a lesson plan, stimulus materials and suggested activities. In this case, students look at the causes and agents of food contamination. The activities help students to:
* name some microbes of particular importance in foods
* understand the importance of hand washing and food hygiene
* understand how easy it is to contaminate food
* describe briefly some of the important processes food companies go through to
meet the high standards set by legislation
