Stay Healthy this Summer: Food Safety Tips
Dr. Nicole's Kid Corner

Spring and summer is a wonderful time of year to enjoy backyard barbeques and weekend picnics.

Unfortunately, eating outside of the kitchen increases your risk of becoming ill from salmonella and e-coli. Here are some easy tips on keeping your family and friends healthy!

There is nothing quite like the aroma of grilling burgers, chicken and veggies.

Healthy grilling tips: Keep food cold until you are ready to grill, bacteria grow between 40 F and 140 F, and hot until serving time.

Cook hamburgers to an internal temperature of 160 F and chicken to 165 F, which is easy to keep track of with a meat thermometer.

Never reuse marinades that have had raw meat in them, use clean dishes after the meat is cooked.
Preheat grill to 350 F, before placing food on the grill. This will also prevent the food from sticking.

Any condiments and foods with a mayonnaise base (coleslaw, macaroni salad, ceaser salad) need to be kept refrigerated until serving. After serving, place in the cooler- before seconds.
