Suffering from morning sickness?

Peanut butter is an inexpensive source of protein and may be tolerated better than meat when nauseated. Try spreading peanut butter on dry crackers.

Be food safe
  • Wash hands, utensils and surfaces before and after preparing food.
  • Store nonfat dry milk in airtight container. A tight cover is necessary, so the milk powder will not absorb moisture and become lumpy. Unopened dry milk can be kept at room temperature for 3-6 months. It will keep in a cool (70oF or less) dry place for 1-2 years. After powder has been mixed with water, it should be refrigerated.
  • Peanut butter can be stored safely in a pantry because of high oil content. Keep unopened peanut butter no longer than 9-12 months for best quality. After opening, peanut butter may still be stored safely in pantry; storage times may vary. Discard when peanut butter develops rancid odor or flavor.
