Food freshness tips & a chance to win with GLAD

Lunch is an important meal that helps maintain energy levels for the afternoon. GLAD is here to give you a hand on how to store and protect your food for lunches, keeping them fresh throughout the day. Along with these helpful tips below, they are also offering you a chance to win one of two R300 product hampers!

See the steps below from GLAD to help guide you.

Step 1: Write a meal plan for the week and take it with you to the supermarket so you know exactly what to buy. When you get home, stick it on your fridge so you can keep track as the week goes on. Planning meals in advance is the best way to save money, give your family a balanced diet and get organised for the week ahead.

Step 2: Learn how long ingredients last (from one day to several weeks). With GLAD products you can write the date on the item, which will help familiarise yourself with the lifespan of ingredients you use regularly.

Step 3: Stock up on Cling Wrap, Zip Seal Resealable Bags and Press’n Seal to prepare, portion and protect your food on a daily basis.

Step 4: Knowledge equals fresher food for longer, proper food storage means less waste. A leading cause for food being thrown out is because people are not sure how to store it. A few more tips to help you with your step by step on-the-go plan.
