Food Hygiene Training

This week, Mr Patrick McAfferty (Highland Council) gave us food hygiene training. We learned about the common causes of food poisoning and how to prevent it. We used talcum powder and moisturiser to show the spread of germs between people just by shaking hands and sharing desks and pencils. We checked how thoroughly our volunteers washed their hands, using ultraviolet lights.

Ask us to recall and explain at least three things from Monday’s training.

The Eatwell Guide

Last week Mrs Laird revised the food groups with us and showed us how to use the interactive Eatwell Guide. We had a discussion about our favourite main meals and had to find a healthy, affordable recipe to share with Mrs Laird and Miss Mullin. In the coming weeks, we will have to narrow down our list to four main meals. Each one needs to feed a family of four for less than £8!
