In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby teach you about food safety and what you can do to make sure your food is okay to eat. You’ll learn what foods can be a home for bacteria, molds, and viruses, what food poisoning is, and some simple rules to prevent it. Learn how to treat groceries such as dairy products, fruits, vegetables, and meats to avoid food poisoning, and get the lowdown on why it’s important to wash your hands before and after handling food. Find out about pasteurization, expiration dates, perishable foods, and clues that tell you about a food’s freshness. After all, no one wants to eat rotten food or drink sour milk! Ew!
