Portion planning is great way to reduce food waste and save money on buying too much food. Out top tips for portion planning are below:
Only buy what you need during your regular shopping trip to the store or online by selecting how many meals you plan to use each food for – taking away the guesswork during shopping will keep the £’s in your pocket.
Prepare the right amount, every mealtime – minimising waste at the same time as keeping an eye on you and your family’s health.
Check out the portion planner before you shop, knowing how much to get will reduce waste and save the £s.
Why not ask everyone to bring their own crockery and cutlery, they can bring some from home and it saves on the washing up too!
If you’re hosting, opt for reusable items or see if there’s a local hire company that can help you out.
Make sure that your guests can easily separate their recyclable and non recyclable waste, try separate bins with labels.
