Resist Those Holiday Treats


Resist the Cookie Dough Temptation

Resist the Cookie Dough TemptationSampling the batter while baking holiday treats may seem like as much of a tradition as singing carols or decorating the house, but eating batter or cookie dough that contains raw eggs can lead to salmonella poisoning.
It's especially important to teach children to not eat cookie dough containing raw eggs, as young children are more vulnerable to food poisoning. Before you begin cooking with children, discuss the Cookie Rookie Pledge together to help them understand what they can do to stay healthy and happy, and enjoy their cookies too!
