Lunch boxes: Hygiene matters

Lunch boxes: Hygiene matters

Lunch boxes should be washed out once a day

Lunch boxes have long outstripped the breakfast bag. PVC-free plastic lunch boxes are ideal for transport in school bags. Ideally those in which bot and fruit can be stored separately. This is what TÜV Rheinland points out.

Hygiene is an important requirement for health. The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) particularly warns of pathogens that can be caused by food with poor hygiene. Food is an ideal breeding ground for germs. Lunch boxes should therefore be washed out daily. Ideally in dishwashers. This guarantees proper cleanliness. But also the drinking bottles have to be cleaned every day so that no harmful germs can form. (fr)
