Food can go bad soon and people seldom look at the expired date. It may cause digestive system disease. Even you miss the date and throw the deteriorated away, it is a waste of food. This design provides a simple solution to the problems. User can easily set the expired date of food with two buttons. By showing three different modes, it indicates the food condition and tells people whether it is safe to eat. As it is designed as a clip, user can easily attach it on food package. People can see the food condition as long as they see the package. It prevents people from eating bad food and reduces food waste in a resource saving social context.
