Here are a few simple graphic tips to help you prepare a meal that leaves nothing more than full stomachs and smiles on the faces of your family.







Separate raw meats from other food

Clean your food handling surfaces and tools

Cook food to a safe temperature

Chill leftovers properly

And just to make sure you've followed all the steps you need, print out our Be Food Safe Checklist and stick it on the fridge as a reminder.
