(WPSD) — It's important to limit your grocery store trips during the COVID-19 outbreak to save money and practice social distancing. You can make your food last longer by buying non-perishables and frozen food items.

Dietitians say to stick to fruits and vegetables that stay fresh longer, like apples, potatoes and carrots.

Canned beans and rice are signature foods that don't go bad quickly.

Also, you can freeze strawberries, bananas and avocados, and store pre-sliced loaves of bread in the freezer.

One dietitian tells WPSD that frozen vegetables, chicken and fish are ideal.
