I would like to take the opportunity to remind families about ways to ensure that children's food is kept fresh and safe while at kindy. Please read through the following points which are drawn from C&K's Food and Beverage procedure:
-Morning Tea items at kindy are not refrigerated. Please ensure that any meat, dairy or cooked food items are kept cold using an insulated bag with an ice brick. Alternatively, you might provide morning tea foods that do not need to be temperature controlled.
-If you bring your child's lunch to kindy in an insulated lunchbag, please remember to remove the insulated bag before putting your child's lunch into the fridge. Cold air from the fridge cannot penetrate insulated bags and therefore food inside insulated bags is at risk of perishing.
-Ensure that your child's food containers are clearly named. It is sometimes helpful to add some stickers or other symbols to your child's lunch box so that they can easily identify theirs.
If you need any more information, or would like a copy of the C&K Food and Beverage Procedure, please feel free to email Marie at firstname.lastname@example.org
