New teaching tool helps kids learn about food safety

Winnipeg Health Region
Published Thursday May 25, 2000

"Fight BAC" is a fun and interactive program designed to teach kids about food safety. The program, developed by the Canadian Partnership for Consumer Food Safety Education, aims at educating children from kindergarten through grade three about the importance of hand washing, which foods to keep cold, washing fruits and vegetables, and keeping counters clean.

The program, launched by Manitoba Agriculture, Manitoba Health, Manitoba Conservation, the City of Winnipeg, and the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, was introduced Thursday, May 25th to children in grades one and two at William Whyte Community School, 200 Powers Street. The lessons were taught by a community nutritionist and a public health nurse.

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority will ensure that the lesson kits are available to all Winnipeg schools for the 2000/01 school year, and will support our partners in education to deliver this program.
