Practicing good health habits and being aware of food safety rules is important for all children, but even more for those with disabilities, chronic health conditions or reduced immune response. School staff, extended family and other caregivers may be unaware of health and safety issues.

Parents who have lost children to avoidable illnesses due to contamination like e. Coli and crusaded for simple preventive methods like hand-washing may have saved many more lives, and saved many families the grief they experienced by raising awareness and providing information.
