You could have people sweep

i was thinking about getting our clients to make and organise mid morning and mid afternoon snacks.....cutting up bananas, making sandwiches.......

Hi Emma
How strict is your place about infection control??
You should always have the clients wear gloves
You could have each client make something for themselves
You could help those who need help making their own sandwich
Bananas are pretty easy to cut it up
