MSU Extension Experts Accept TummySafe honor
The National Extension Association honored two Mississippi State University Extension Service professionals for Family and Consumer Sciences for their work done in the field of early childhood health. Jenna Schilling and Natasha Haynes won the national Early Childhood Child Care Training Award for the TummySafe program, which is a food certification course for childcare providers. TummySafe teaches about food safety and is delivered online and in the classroom. The program was created because of the demand for childcare providers across Mississippi. TummySafe focuses on subjects such as diapering, handling breast milk and formula, safe serving practices, cooking, storing and holding food.
