Here you'll find loads of useful information about everything from food groups to packaging and from setting up your kitchen to cooking on a barbecue. We've aimed to cover all the basics you need to enable you to shop and cook cleverly, efficiently and cheaply, to be able to make the right food choices, and to cook safely and healthily for life. These fact sheets are by no means the definitive guide to all things food, but they're a good, solid start, and should set you on the right path to learning everything you need to know. It's important to remember that different countries have different regulations, ingredients, welfare standards and health guidelines so you need to check online for the most relevant and up-to-date information for your country. We've also put in lots of helpful links to various online resources – there are some great sites out there offering loads of extra information – don't forget to search for your local equivalents so that you're always getting the latest, most relevant information for where you live.
