Reviewers Comments: “Keep or Toss” is a fun way to review basic food safety concepts. The presentation is set up like a game, listing five different leftover or left out food items and asking whether they should be kept or tossed. Between each question is a review of food safety concepts, and tips for keeping food safe. The resource can be used as an entertaining review following a lesson on food safety.

The available materials for this resource include an online slideshow, a downloadable PowerPoint presentation, and a downloadable two-page related handout. The information on each of these three resources is identical. The presentations are available in full color and the handout is in black and white, and all contain similar cartoon graphics, some used repetitively. Both presentations include cute, chirpy audio sounds. While the online presentation may be easier to access, the downloadable PowerPoint presentation allows an educator to add questions and alter slides. There is a 5 step guide to cleaning fruits and vegetables included in all resources; however, it is numbered incorrectly in the presentations.
