When it comes to food hygiene it is so important to wash, wash, wash your hands!  

Before cooking anything, thoroughly wash your hands with warm, soapy water. Keep your surfaces and utensils clean. When in doubt, it never hurts to give your benches and cutting boards an extra scrub. Always wash fresh fruits and vegetables with water only (no soap) before eating or preparing them.

Cancer and cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and stem cell/bone marrow transplantation, often weaken the immune system. This makes it harder for your body to protect itself from foodborne illness, also called food poisoning. Foodborne illness is caused by eating food that contains harmful bacteria, parasites, or viruses.

Don’t forget your thankyou hand sanitiser in Kit too for an extra boost.
