For many families, the kitchen is ground zero for holiday preparations and celebrations. From Christmas dinner to New Year’s brunch, there’s a whole lot of cooking going on. Make sure to follow best practices to keep your food safe and your guests healthy.
If you’re cooking this season, consider these food safety tips provided by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:
- Keep at least two cutting boards—one for raw meats and seafood and the other for produce and ready-to-eat foods.
- Consider using paper towels rather than sponges and kitchen towels that can lead to cross-contamination on kitchen surfaces and hands.
