Kids Demand safe trays!

Mt Sinai Warning  

WARNING!!

When Debby Lee Cohen was gathering trays
from school cafeterias for her Parson's project,
"No Tray Left Behind", she noticed that many
kids were carving their trays with
their forks while eating.
PLEASE WARN YOUR CHILDREN
NOT TO CARVE OR PIERCE THE TRAYS
WHILE EATING!!!

Children sometimes scrape their lunch trays,
either to finish their food or just for fun.
By doing this, it is possible they may ingest
some of the chemical styrene. We, as
Environmental Pediatricians, advise use of
food containers made from materials other than
styrene or choose, as some schools have, to
remove school trays from cafeterias altogether.
