Safe Recipe Activity for Middle School Students
Did you know there could be harmful germs in your food?
Germs are invisible, they’re everywhere, and some can make you very sick. Germs can be in your food, on your hands, or even on kitchen utensils, cutting boards and counter tops. Luckily, there are steps you can take when you’re preparing food that lower your risk of getting a foodborne illness.
One easy way to remember these steps is to use a safe recipe while preparing food. Safe recipes include food safety steps, like washing your hands, that lower the risk of getting sick from harmful germs.
The Safe Recipe Activity takes about 30 minutes to complete and will teach you how to use the Safe Recipe Style Guide to turn a basic recipe into a safe recipe.
You might know some of the steps and food safety information from the guide already! Start the activity by taking the quiz on the next page and test your food safety knowledge!
