Tip: Use your loaf

According to Love Food Hate Waste, 20 million slices of bread are thrown away every day in the UK. If that’s just sliced bread, consider how many other bread products are also going to waste: bagels, crumpets, pittas, tortilla wraps and more.

My little boy loves a wrap, we go through lots of them but he will only eat one, occasionally two at a time. Here’s what I do with them (and other bread products).

Once they’re in the freezer, grab one whenever you need. They defrost within minutes, can go straight in a dry pan or you can put them in the microwave for 30 seconds.

So, next time you buy bread products and don’t manage to eat the whole packet, think about freezing the rest, wrapping in or separating with greaseproof paper where appropriate.
