Penn State University’s “Health Bodies Project” used a Refrigerator/Freezer Thermometer as a tool to teach young children healthy habits and food safety.
Their goal was to increase children’s exposure to fruits and vegetables – how each fruit or vegetable grows and why they are good for them. They also provide families with guidance on shopping, storing, cooking, and eating in a way that improves dietary patterns and overall health for the entire family.
The Refrigerator/Freezer Thermometer was the perfect fit for their program. The refrigerator & freezer scale highlighted on the thermometers ensure families that their appliances are operating in a safe temperature zone. Storing foods at the proper temperature increases the shelf life & food safety.
