Knife safety

 

how to carry a knife

Never point

hold largest part of veg NOT bit you are going to cut off

tuck in fingers

always use corrrect size knife for job - big enough but not too big

if knife is too small you are more inclined to wiggle it or stab with it

Remember that even tomatoes can have tougher skin, so it is sometimes more appropriate to give children half a piece to chop - on larger things such as potatoes - putting flat cut side down helps with stability
