John Botham Safety Specialist's curator insight, July 15, 2015 11:48 AM

Correct food handling techniques are extremely important when working with food.  The correct preservation of food will ensure the  possible risk of illness is reduced. Healthy food choices will also have positive effects on the body and reduce disease. I believe having a meal plan is extremely important, as a suitable meal plan will save money and provide the correct nutrients to the body. This is something I am very passionate about, as I believe healthy food leads to a healthy life, and all people should be able to access healthy and safe food.
