Love Food Hate Waste: Know your dates

by

Sammie Strawberry Loves Food, Hates Waste (large version)As well as keeping up with all the social dates in your diary, don’t forget to keep an eye on the dates in your fridge too.

Use up foods with the shortest dates first, and when shopping check to see if fresh foods can be frozen in case you don’t get round to eating them in time.

Best before dates are for quality, so you can eat these foods after this date, they just may no longer be at their best – eggs are the exception. Use by dates are for safety, you can eat or freeze foods right up to the end of the use by date.
