Poll: Do you stick to use-by dates on food?

It has been estimated that British households throw away around seven million tonnes of food and drink every year, mostly past its sell-by date.

How strict are you at sticking to ‘use-by’ guidelines on food?

Or do you judge if something is fit to eat by sight and smell?

Is there more we should be doing to avoid wasting food? Or maybe you have already changed your habits to cut down on the amount you throw away?
