Each year, after Purim, I am left with mounds of candy bars, wafers, juice boxes and other junk food that no one in my family eats. It gets thrown into the garbage. Seriously, we tried one year giving this to another family that has a lot of kids, and the parents took it not to embarrass us. But, afterwards, the mom asked us not to do this again as it was not healthy for her kids.
No doubt, many people have this experience - the junk food gets thrown out. So, halachically, to avoid wasted food, should people either not include "junk food" at all, or limit sending mishloach manot to just one person, perhaps? Any other trick to avoid bal taschis?
