Get cooking and stop chucking

Kathie Auton: Half of all food thrown away - that's the news story I woke up to this morning. And yesterday I was reading about children no longer being taught to cook. Children cooking and using up food: two things that obsess my thoughts daily. I want to get on my soapbox today. I want to say 'get cooking and stop chucking', but these are hardly problems that will be solved by foot stamping and opining.

The Sunday roast

Kathie Auton: We used to be pretty organic-y, before we dropped two children and one salary. Nowadays our household is still all about enjoying our food, but we're not slavishly organic. It would be easy to put this down to simply not having as much cash, but there's more to it than that. I used to love my veg box, but more because my local greengrocer's was an easy trundle down the hill and a big, sweaty, pram marathon up it. And it's not like we've ditched everything organic. Like a lot of people we buy organic yogurt, eggs and often milk without really thinking about about it being organic. And when you think about it, that's a hell of an achievement for the organic movement, that there are organic brands that are the norm and probably find their way into the least organic households.
