Your comments and views on food waste

Following Tesco's discovery that the average family spends £700 a year on food that is thrown away, we asked ITV News viewers, "How much food do you waste every week?"

  • Dawn Robson says, "I never throw away food, I write a list of meals I'm making that week and only buy what I need ... Those who throw food away must be rich and have money to burn."
  • Jenny Collins comments, "Maybe they should make bagged salad in smaller portions? I quite regularly throw away half a bag."
  • Steven Jefferies says he throws away "loads" of food, adding, "Being single it is more expensive to buy individual items than it is pre-packed."
