Our family fridge is notoriously disorganised. It’s a blackhole of expired sauces and mouldy cheeses. However, my shame quickly became inspiration when I was browsing through the internet and discovered practical strategies to spankingly clean, sensibly organised and insanely healthy looking fridges.

This creative printable activity encourages children and students to research about refrigerator organisation and food safety.
