A lesson in food safety for World Food Safety Day


At a school in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, students celebrated World Food Safety Day this year by learning all about the WHO’s Five Keys to Safer Food. They then made posters and videos about what they had learned in order to raise awareness in their families and amongst their peers.

The activities were an initiative from Corbridge Middle School’s science teacher, Meryl Batchelder, who said “Our Year 7 pupils love getting creative in science. Raising awareness of World Food Safety Day by recording short videos was memorable and made learning very enjoyable. These are easy lessons that can help save lives.” Batchelder also said “Linking learning to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is something we do at every opportunity.”

Tess, aged 12, said of the lessons: “Tiktok videos are a great way of communicating ideas on #FoodSafety. We had loads of fun in the lesson.”
