The food mountain

Not only do we buy crap, but then we don't get round to eating it - about a third of food in the UK gets chucked out each year, costing each adult £420. Whatever happened to making things from leftovers? (We just don't eat enough soup, obviously...)

Mind, it's all very well Lord Haskins complaining that we're obsessed with sell-by dates "so that we throw away perfectly good food which happens to be out of code". He should try being pregnant and being bombarded with information about what you should and shouldn't eat, and how not to go near anything that may have been out of the fridge longer than 10 minutes or something that's a second past its sell-by date. It's enough to drive you to distraction.
