Make sure all pans, dishes and tools used in preparing food are clean. Dry them on a drying rack and avoid using a cloth to dry them.
Uncooked meat and fish, and uncooked vegetables with soil on them, should never touch cooked foods. After handling uncooked food, wash hands well before handling cooked foods.
Some food such as milk, fish, cooked meat, cooked rice and other cereals will spoil more quickly than other kinds of food. Once cooked, these foods should not be left at warm temperatures for more than two hours before eating.
Flies carry disease, so food should always be covered. When preparing food, put waste food into a covered container to avoid attracting flies. Use a pit for rubbish that is a good distance from homes. If possible, cover with earth each time the rubbish pit is used.
