Cleaning and sanitizing equipment and surfaces helps avoid the spread of illness. Providing a clean, sanitized, and well laid out table for children creates a healthy, safe, and welcoming environment for children to participate in the mealtime experience.

Key points:
Wash tables to remove dirt and debris
Spray entire surface with EPA-approved sanitizer or bleach solution
Leave sanitizer on for the appropriate amount of time or let air dry
Use separate paper towels for separate surfaces
