In Denmark, The Veterinary and Food Administration may change a law that bans selling food past its “best-by” date. Stores would be in charge of determining how long they can sell an item. I can see this helping in some cases, and backfiring in others. Fascinating, though.

    I actually LIKE porridge–not every day mind you because I like bacon and eggs too :^] But I do not make the instant stuff at the store. I usually make it from a mix (amount of each varies each time) of whole grains such as rice, millet, oats, amaranth, spelt, etc. I make it plain with water and salt and it keeps in the fridge for a couple of weeks. I then scoop out what I want, add fruit (or cocoa powder!) and spices, a little bit of sugar, and milk, microwave it for a couple of minutes, and dig in. Yummy and quick.

    Maybe the hospital should reconsider their porridge recipe…
