(HealthDay News) -- Snacking may be the first thing on a child's mind after school. But young ones should also take steps to prevent getting sick.

The Foodsafety.gov website offers these tips:

  • Teach children to wash hands before preparing or eating a snack.
  • Make sure they use clean utensils.
