    Default School canteen food - cooked the same day - ok?

    My school does things like chicken stir fry - cooked that day. The food may then sit in the baya marie for an hour max. Is this ok to eat? Or should I avoid the meat?
    Thanks

    Unless they can guarantee the food is kept at 60 degrees at least ( which is the actual legal requirement for serving hot food) I wouldn't risk it - any food that goes under 60 degrees is susceptible to bacteria so I probably wouldn't risk it!

    I work in a school too and ate from our canteen while I was pregnant. I only ate the hot foods, not sandwiches and rolls etc that were pre made. And I tried to get down to the canteen right at the start of lunch or just before if I could do it was as fresh as possible. So I think you'll be ok

    You could buy it, take it into the staff room, microwave it until it's really hot, then eat it..
    Assuming you're a teacher of course!
