Safe Food Preparation

Author(s): Nancy Moreno, PhD, and Barbara Tharp, MS.

Let's Talk About it

This activity teaches students safe food preparation procedures while they make ice cream. Students learn the importance of washing hands and keeping cooking utensils and cooking surfaces clean during food preparation. 

Ask students, Did you create and maintain a clean food preparation area? What precautions did you take to avoid food contamination? Is your ice cream safe to eat? Do you think your ice cream would still be safe to eat if it was left on the table until tomorrow?
