(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.
