If you are looking for ways to incorporate sustainability into your lifestyle, a good place to start is with food. Since we don’t have a choice about buying food, it’s important to buy well and make other important food choices in order to become eco friendly. Here are some tips in how to implement environmentally friendly habits with food – and encourage your children to do the same.
- Only buy what you need of perishable items.
- If the fruit you purchase is getting riper by the hour and no one wants to eat it, cook it. Stewed apple, peaches and plums, baked bananas and orange juice in cakes or icing will all save that fruit going to waste. You can even stew and freeze it for later on.
- Train your children to eat what is in the house, rather than refusing it and wanting something different.
