This is based from a report released by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN). The highest wastage rates Of these food items are fruits and vegetables, plus roots and tubers.

In the Philippines alone, food wastage is becoming a public concern, especially that every day, the country discards around 987,952 kg of rice, a staple in every Filipino meal, according to the latest PSA data.

To help with this, Beko Philippines urges Filipinos to avoid food wastage, starting from simple habits to develop when preparing meals at home. Here are some clever habits to manage leftovers which Beko listed to ensure that you still provide all the nutrients needed by your family:

Keep it simple. Salads and soups are a popular way to manage leftovers. Mix favorite pieces of leftover meats, fish, and choice of crops. Aside from the flavor, these dishes contain nutrients, depending on the ingredients. Also, always remember that being creative in the kitchen doesn’t mean stressing yourself over a new creation.

Like the creation of new dishes, transforming leftovers makes for great appetizers. Kids often leave vegetables untouched because of its blandness. Present in a way that makes it appealing. Use tasteless stalks of leafy greens as a base for smoothies and such. You can also boost its nutritional content by adding black beans, lentils and quinoa for a filling breakfast.

Store Fresh Produce Properly

You can never go wrong if you know how to store fresh produce in your fridge properly. Improper storage of produce leads to early spoilage. Certain organic compounds, like ethylene gas, contribute to the early maturity of fruits. This type of emission is common in fruits, such as bananas, strawberries, avocados, and mangoes.

You can cover the tips of bananas and keep strawberries in the fridge to slow down their ripening. It is also recommended to separate these types of fruits from the other ethylene-sensitive produce like potatoes and vegetables to avoid spoilage and food waste.

Follow the FIFO Method

Keep your fridge well-stocked but don’t go overboard. Organize your refrigerator to oversee the quality of fresh food and leftovers. You can also try the “First in, First Out” (FIFO) method to avoid food spoilage.
