Food waste drives me bonkers. My boys clear their plates and don't leave food either.
We are aware of the glutenous and obese west while others in the world are going hungry.
We have minimal food waste in our house, mainly vegetable peelings which are composted. As we live near to various supermarkets and independent food shops we are able to shop daily for fresh food and only buy what we need.
I even toast the boys crusts and butter the outsides then sandwiching them together as illustrated. R then eats the cut out exteriors!
At this time of year its easy to go over the top with food, purchasing and consuming too much. Visit www.lovefoodhatewaste.com for some seasonal pointers.
