1 Eat the seasons

2 © Food – a fact of life 2012 What are seasonal foods? Seasonal food is the time of year when food is at its best, in terms of flavour or harvest. Many foods are available all year, as they are imported from other countries. When local seasonal food is available it tends to be fresher and cheaper - there has been less travel/storage from farm to fork.

3 © Food – a fact of life 2012 Why seasonal food? Foods are usually harvested when they are at their peak and typically have the most flavour and nutrients, so the food tends to be tastier, healthier and better for the environment. Take a look at the seasons to see when different foods are at their best. Eat seasonal foods.
