Are you familiar with FIFO? The acronym stands for first-in-first-out and it pertains to stocking perishable items. If you have ever worked in any restaurant, bar, hospital or fast food joint, FIFO is branded in your brain. The goal is to sell older food items closer to out-of-date status to prevent the financial loss of food waste. So, when you shop for fresh food, have no shame in grabbing your bagged lettuce or bread from the back of the shelf.

I am a registered and licensed dietitian, wife of an incredibly smart pharmacist and mother of three beautiful children with a baby on the way! I received my education at The University of Alabama where I received a degree in Food and Nutrition and successfully completed extensive training in hospitals, large food service facilities, dialysis clinics and state WIC facilities. I studied for the RD exam and passed it in 2002. I have been practicing dietetics ever since. I am passionate about nutrition and firmly believe in the ability of a healthy lifestyle to prevent diseases, improve quality of life and help manage co-morbidities. View all posts by Kelly, RD

I do that. It’s just smart!
Yes! Some people don’t know that the freshest items are pushed to the back. Lovely trick!
