La Vida de Matilde

Matilde finds the courage to open her own home child care business and learns about the importance of food safety in caring for small children. This Spanish-language telenovela (soap opera) teaches viewers the four areas of the Fight BAC! campaign: keeping hands and surfaces clean, preventing cross-contamination, cooking foods to proper temperatures and chilling foods promptly. Proper techniques for diapering and safe handling of bottles and baby food are also included.

A companion booklet, "Keeping Kids Safe: Food Safety for Child Care Providers," accompanies this video. The video is available in Spanish with English subtitles.
