A Solution to World Food Waste?

Children are often not allowed to leave the table until they finish everything on their plate - but as adults there is no one to keep us in check when it comes to contributing to the global food wastage problem. 

The Japanese are taking matters into their own hands. A seafood restaurant in Sapporo has started to fine customers who leave any food after their meal. The restaurant states on the menu that customers who leave any part of their signature dish will be fined a surcharge that will be donated to the fishermen who make the meal possible.

Should all restaurants adopt this rule? Could this be a solution to the shocking amount of food we waste every year? Tell us in the comment box below.
