Treating your Mum for a meal out at her favourite restaurant on Mother's Day? Before you book it, check out its Food Hygiene Rating to make sure your eating experience is safe as well as enjoyable, and not likely to have any unexpected aftereffects. You might be surprised by some of the results. Its possible that a cheap takeaway might have a higher food hygiene rating than a smart, expensive restaurant. Ratings are from 0-5, with 5 being the highest. The top rating of 5 means a business has very good hygiene standards and every outlet should be able to achieve this. Check them out online at the Food Standards Agency.
