As we have mentioned previously, picky eaters and leftovers are age-old enemies, but there are several ways to change that for your family! The first is to have a night dedicated to leftovers that allows your family to enjoy a new tradition with each other but gives a new spin to the meals.
If your leftovers have been forgotten in the fridge for a little too long, and are now spoiled then you can still gain use from them other than just shoving them in your garbage to end up in the landfill. You can compost them! Food scraps and leftovers are great for composting as they provide fertilizer and nutrients to the soil for plants to grow.
If you don’t want to deal with having leftovers at all then you can start by planning out meal portions for you and your family. If you notice your family is wasting large portions of their meals then you can start to track the amount that everyone eats so you can portion meals accordingly.
