Put together a few snack size portions of healthier options , such as pretzels , popcorn , trail mix , or yogurt . These are great for little ones who just can not seem to wait those extra 20 minutes before dinner . They are also great to have on hand in case you get struck in traffic .
If you are bringing a dish , don't forget a hot pad and a serving utensil . And do your best to bring items that need little or no additional preparation in the host's kitchen .
If you are hosting , make sure that all chemicals are stored away , that knives and other hazardous utensils are out of reach of young children . Watch handles on the stove to make sure they are turned inward.
If you are traveling , make sure you are properly refrigerating foods by storing them in an ice chest or insulated bag with a cold source .
