Give yourself and others the gift of health and safety this holiday season. Exercise and make healthy food choices that include plenty of fruits and vegetables. When preparing foods, wash hands and surfaces often to avoid the spread of germs. Cook foods to the proper temperatures and promptly refrigerate leftovers. It is tempting, but beware! eating raw cookie dough or batter, can make you sick. Celebrate with family and friends, but don’t drink and drive or let others drink and drive. Whenever someone drives drunk, they put everyone on the road in danger. For more tips go to the CDC's Holiday Health and Safety Tips page.
