Cook Out Safely
During the summer, stovetops and ovens get swapped for grills. It’s important to not forget about food safety guidelines while grilling out:
Don’t cross-contaminate. Keep raw and cooked foods separate by not using the same platters or utensils.
Cook your food thoroughly. Cooking on a grill often results in quicker browning of the meat on the outside, but the inside typically remains raw. Use a food thermometer to ensure your meat is cooked properly.
All raw beef, pork, lamb and veal steaks, chops and roasts should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 145 F.
All ground beef, pork, lamb and veal should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 160 F.
Poultry should be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 165 F.
Calcium: Are You Getting Enough?
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in your body. Consuming enough calcium is critical for keeping your bones and teeth strong, and for maintaining the function of your nerves, heart and muscles.
Failing to get enough calcium can stunt children’s growth and can increase the risk of developing osteoporosis. The current recommended dietary allowance (RDA) by age group is as follows:
1-3 years—700 mg daily
4-8 years—1,000 mg daily
9-18 years—1,300 mg daily
19-50 years—1,000 mg daily
51-70 years—1,000 mg daily (men) and 1,200 mg daily (women)
