Breastfeeding and food poisoning

Hi - so my 3 year old just touched raw turkey and then licked her fingers.

Not usually one to worry about these things but she has her bday party on Sunday and I am all stressed due to 3 dc (5,3 and 3mth) and it is Friday!

Anyway she still has breast milk.

Reading about something called HMOs vs pathogens in the gut and it appears that b milk might ward off any potential poisoning- or do you think that it would only be for babies / infants getting most of their nourishment from bm?

If anyone has any interesting articles etc can you send?

Nothing I can do now but I do enjoy reading bf info.

I don't think those few drops would contain enough bacteria to do any harm.
