How to get today date in Jinja template ( Email Template)

I have child table, items and i need to filter the item whose item_date is less than today’s date.
I need to send an email so i created a email template like below

{% for row in item_details %}
{% if < %}
{{ row.item_name }}
{% endif %}
{% endfor %}

Am getting syntax error. How to get date in jinja template and filter the specific item.
Is works in jinja template?

@madhusona it’s frappe.utils.getdate()
also use it to convert from str to date.

{% if frappe.utils.getdate( < frappe.utils.getdate() %}
