Sustainable suppers

This year WWF is encouraging the nation to eat sustainably by following a few simple principles:

1 Eat more plants
Enjoy your five-a-day with a variety of fruit, vegetables and wholegrains. And why not grow your own herbs and veg?

2 Eat a variety of food
Nine out of ten people cook the same nine meals again and again! It's time to try something different and colourful.

3 Waste less food
One-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted, so try to plan your meals and use up your leftovers!

4 Buy foods that meet a credible certified standard
Try to consider MSC, free-range and Fairtrade options as well as locally sourced foods. Credible certified foods are produced sustainably which helps ensure the conservation of wildlife.

5 Eat fewer foods high in fat, salt and sugar
Try to keep foods such as cakes, sweets, chocolate, fizzy drinks, fries and crisps, and some breakfast cereals to an occasional treat.
