Health Tip: Don't Waste Food

Suggestions for cutting down

(HealthDay News) -- Your mother always warned you against the evils of wasting food.

To combat the practice, the Environmental Protection Agency suggests:

  • Don't buy more produce than you can use before it goes bad.
  • Research the best way to store each fruit and vegetable -- whether inside or outside the refrigerator.
  • Got plenty of seasonal produce? Can, freeze or preserve extras.
  • Keep bananas, apples and tomatoes separate from other produce. Other produce can lead to these foods ripening too quickly.
  • To avoid mold, don't rinse berries until just before you eat them.
