Want to help choose what you eat at home? Want to throw away less food and save money at the same time? Then this is the mission for you!!
What to Do
Get a pen or a pencil and a piece of paper. Better yet, save those trees and use an electronic device.
Get your family together, maybe around a meal time and talk about what you want in your school lunchbox for the week. Remember to think about what leftovers you can use from dinners.
Put the ingredients for those meals, and the other basics you need into a shopping list.
Only buy the items on the list when the shopping is done.
See if you are throwing less food away - bet you are! Let us know how you get on.

How This Helps
When we shop for groceries, so much of the food that we buy is thrown away. We often buy more than we need, and this is usually because we're just guessing what we’ll eat over the next week. If we plan what we buy, it will not only save money, but will reduce the amount of good food that we throw away and help protect the environment. Win-win!
