The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions:
- Stock up on healthy foods that your family eats in large quantities, especially if the items are on sale.
- But don't buy food you don't really need just because it's on sale.
- Only buy as much as your family can eat within two or three months.
- Before you buy, make sure you have enough room in your freezer to store meat, fish and chicken.
