Love Food Hate Waste

Research shows that everyone throws away more food than they think they do. Nearly half of what is thrown away is fresh fruit and vegetables, bread, dairy produce, rice and pasta. Some of the common reasons are buying too much in the first place, not storing things properly so they go off quickly, not eating things in time and cooking too much, especially things like pasta and rice. Whatever food you love, these handy tips can help you waste less and save you money (up to £700 for a family with children).
