Food Hygiene in Nurseries

EU Regulation 852/2004 Hygiene for Foodstuffs requires Nurseries to make sure that any members of staff handling food are supervised, instructed and trained in Food Hygiene in a way that is appropriate to the work they do. Maintaining hygiene standards within your Nursery is essential, due to the potential rapid spread of germs.
