Win prizes for your school – competition!
November 18th, 2015
As the majority of people learn their food safety habits from a member of their family, it is important to help children get things right from the start.
The Department of Health Food Unit, with the help of WASCA, is running a competition to promote food safety and hygiene designed for children of primary school age. The activities aim to help the children learn more about storing food in the fridge, preparing food correctly and keeping the kitchen clean and hygienic.
