Children are considered a highly susceptible population, meaning they are at a greater risk for contracting a food-borne illness.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that every year, one-in-six Americans will get a food-borne illness.
This course will look at ways to handle breast milk, formula, and other foods to help prevent food-borne illness from occurring in a child care facility.
Other topics discussed include:
- basic symptoms of food-borne illness
- handling foods properly
- personal hygiene
- and product dates information.
This course will provide one credit hour of training.
