"Promoting and protecting healthy diets and making them available, accessible and affordable is critical for having a fulfilled and happy life." - FAO Director-General Qu Dongyu Good examples of traditional healthy diets "contain the wisdom of our ancestors and the cultural essence of generations." 😋 These include the Mediterranean diet 🏺 which implies high intakes of diverse vegetables, fruits, legumes, herbs and olive oil, the New Nordic diet, traditional Japanese diet 🍣, and the South of China's regional cuisine. All of them can boast a number of benefits ❤️ for example, they can lower cholesterol, prevent heart diseases and diabetes, Qu added.

Fruits that should NOT stored together in the fridge ❄ 🍏 & 🍉 = apples produce high levels of ethylene which turn the watermelon mushy. 🍌 & 🍊🍑🍓🍍 = keep away from others! Bananas will result in most fruit or vegetable ripening quickly and spoiling.

Understand dates on your food🧐 After the “use-by” date has passed, food is not safe to eat anymore. “Best-before” dates, on the other hand, only show when the food is at its best quality in terms of smell, texture, and taste. 🥗 If well stored, most of non-perishable food is still edible after the “best-before” date!🤓

Check your fridge❄️❄️ To make sure that food is properly stored and kept fresher for longer in your fridge, set it to the right temperature (between 1 and 5 °C), ❄️❄️store products in the right places in the fridge, and follow the instructions on the packaging or the fridge manual🧐.

When you put your shopping away, rotate the food in your fridge and cupboard so that the older food comes forward and the most recent shopping – which will keep the longest – goes to the back. But keep an eye on the use-by and best-before dates – some of the new food you have bought may need to be eaten quickly
