Alsalamo Alikom Dear Parents
Hope you are doing well and in the best of your health.
Inshaa’Allah in health classes we will be working on “Fight
BAC for Food Safety”.
It is a program that gives information about food safety and
how to fight bacteria.
This program is divided into 4 simple steps which are:
“Clean, Separate, Cook, Chill”
Clean – wash hands & surfaces often
Bacteria can spread
throughout the kitchen and get on hands, cutting boards, knives, and
countertops. Frequent cleaning can keep that from happening. Always wash
hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds before and after handling food.
Separate – don’t cross contaminate
how harmful bacteria spread. Use one cutting board for fresh produce and a
separate one for raw meat, poultry, and seafood.
Cook – cook to safe temperature
Even for experienced
cooks, the improper heating and preparation of food means bacteria can
survive. Use a food thermometer to measure the internal temperature of cooked
foods. Make sure that meat, poultry, egg dishes, casseroles and other foods
and leftovers are cooked to the internal temperature shown in our cooking
Chill – refrigerate promptly
fastest at temperatures between 4°C (40°F) and 60°C (140°F), so chilling food
properly is one of the most effective ways to reduce the risk of food borne
illness. Chill leftovers and takeout foods within 2 hours. Keep the fridge at
4◦C (40◦F) or below and use an appliance thermometer to check the
Today we started with the first activity which was about the
effective way to remove bacteria from your hands. The students received an
activity form that they have to fill at home and return it back on next Tuesday
insha’Allah. Health classes will be divided as follows: one week to work on
this program and the other week will be in the kitchen to apply what we studied
while cooking or preparing a kind of juice, smoothie,…..etc.
Students can visit this websight at home, click on the
learning centre > kids zone.
They can play a game and fight bacteria online.
I hope that they will enjoy and benefit the most inshaa’Allah.
Jazakom Allah Khiaran for your cooperation.
