The holidays are a time to celebrate, give thanks, and reflect.
Give the gift of health and safety to yourself and others by following these holiday tips:
Wash your hands often.
Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps you can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.
Prepare food safely.
As you prepare holiday meals, and any meals, keep yourself and your family free from food-related illness by handling and preparing food safely.
Cook foods to the proper temperature and refrigerate left over foods promptly.
Make healthy food choices.
Make healthy food choices such as choosing fresh fruit as a festive and sweet substitute for candy. Select just one or two of your favorites from all the tempting foods. Find fun ways to stay active, such as dancing to your favorite holiday music.
Valley-Wide reminds you that with balance and moderation, you can enjoy the holidays the healthy way.
