Step 1:

You obviously want fresh food for your family. Food on the outside aisles always has fresh produce. If you have a slight doubt about its freshness never put that in your trolley.

Step 2:

You need to check the expiry of the item you are buying. Always check expiry before buying anything sometimes they have put a stamp on it so it misleads the customers and they buy it without confirming it with a salesperson.

Step 3:

A big no to frozen foods. Maybe they are convenient for you to rely on frozen foods but they are not healthful and not satisfying. Only buy those items which have low sodium content in them. So it’s a good habit if you read the ingredients written on the packaging.

Step 4:

Don’t buy any soda for yourself and family. Drinks are high in sugar content and it is extremely dangerous for you to have more than one can or glass of soda once a day.
