A balanced diet: No food group is more important than others, they are all required for good health, albeit in varying quantities. A balanced diet is one that gives the human body the nourishment and elements it needs to function optimally.

-Breads, cereals, rice & pasta – 6-11 servings

-Fruits and vegetables – 2-4 servings

-Dairy and meat products – 2-3 servings

-Fats, oils & sweets – use sparsely

Food Safety: aims to produce food, free of contamination. Prevention of contamination occurs at each point in the growing, preparing, processing, storing, selling or serving of food.
