Kids Can! - Mushrooms

When kids help make healthy food, they are more likely to try it. Show kids how to:

❁ gently wipe or rinse mushrooms.

❁ use a cutting board to slice or chop vegetables.

❁ measure dry or liquid ingredients.

❁ use a long handled spoon or spatula to sauté safely.

Keep it Safe! - Ground Beef

❁ Cook, refrigerate or freeze ground beef soon after buying.

❁ Thaw frozen meat in the refrigerator. Allow 12 hours for 1 pound and use a container to catch liquids. Cook or re-freeze within 1 or 2 days.

Shop and Save - Ground Beef

❁ Ground beef is often red on the outside because of exposure to oxygen. A darker color on the inside is normal and not a sign of spoilage.

❁ Watch for ground beef on sale. Stock up if you can cook or freeze within a couple of days.
