Hi can anyone tell me what temperature hot food should be served at for babies and children? I'm Looking for the official guideline not "just use common sense"!! Thank you grin

Room temperature

Children how old? My 5 year old does not need his food to be room temperature.

I think common sense is the only sensible answer.

At exactly 22.5 degrees grin

How would anyone even be able to keep food at a precise exact temperature throughout a meal?! I'm afraid this one does call for common sense...

For a small child, we pop our finger in and if it feels warm but not hot, that's what we serve. So whatever body temperature is!
