Owing to our busy lives and schedules, most of us donít have the time to cook proper meals and eat at home; we prefer to make use of public restaurants and fast foods. Most times, these restaurants are actually unsafe due to poor hygiene or poor food storage system; and this may result to some health issues for people.

Some tips to ensure safety while eating out include;
1. Ensure that You are Served Hot Food: one thing you should always look out for when you visit a public restaurant to eat is to ensure that the food you are serve is steaming hot; never eat a cold or lukewarm food in a public restaurant; this is because heat kills off most bacteria or germs that must have found their way into the food during the preparation process. Also before you start eating, take a taste to see if the food still have its fresh taste.

2. Clean Environment: even prior to the time you are served the meal, you should look around the restaurant to note how clean the environment is; that will give you a clue of the kind of environment where the food was prepared. If you notice that the environment is not that clean, it will be in your best interest to leave the restaurant.

3. Consider what you Eat: always order for a food you are conversant with; some people are guilt of ordering for a meal just because their friend ordered for the same. This will help you prevent food allergies.
