Winter Food – What’s in Season?

Eating seasonally is a great way to connect to nature, save money and help the environment too. In this post, we look at what winter food is in season in the UK.  There is also a handy list to print off and add to your bag or stick on your fridge to help you remember what is in season in the winter months.

Winter food in season

Winter is defined as  December, January, and February in the UK. Buying food in season will be cheaper due to there being so much of it available. It saves the environment as it has not been imported from the other side of the world and helps support the local economy. It also tastes better due to freshness and eating seasonally helps you reconnect to the earth’s natural cycle.
