Eat Seasonably celebrates eating the right things at the right time: a crisp salad when it’s hot and sunny, a wholesome stew when it’s cold; strawberries in June, Brussels sprouts in December.
Eat Seasonably is a nationwide campaign to help you enjoy fruit and veg at its seasonal best.
It is backed by major supermarkets and small market stall-holders alike, as well as cafes, pubs, restaurants and some of the nation’s favourite charities. Top chefs and leading food organisations are also on board. What it means for you is better labelling and clearer signposting of when fruits and vegetables are in season, as well as promotions and offers to make them even more tasty. Plus there are events all summer to get involved in. Join in!
Eating seasonably is also a great way of eating more sustainably. Growing fruit and veg in season requires lower levels of artificial inputs like heating, lighting, pesticides and fertilisers than at other times of the year. So seasonable produce has a lower environmental impact.
Eating seasonably is also a great first step towards thinking about the wider environmental implications of your diet. In fact, there are many ways to decrease the impact of what you and your family eat.
