London, January 4 : A new survey has revealed that more than 50 per cent of British people are too busy to eat properly and instead make do with food eaten on the go.
As a result, healthy eating is made harder, with many relying on snacks and sandwiches to suppress their hunger pangs.
The research, conducted by the New York Bakery Company and reported in Cosmopolitan, also found that the traditional lunch hour is becoming a thing of the past, with 47 per cent of respondents too busy to do anything more than grab a sandwich at their desk, the Daily Mail reported.
Breakfast, said by nutritionists to be the healthiest meal of the day, was also affected by busy schedules, with more than 40 per cent of those polled admitting to spending less than 10 minutes on getting a healthy start to the day.
Worse, nearly one in three combined breakfast and lunch, instead consuming a gut-busting brunch to compensate.
A fifth of respondents said they skipped breakfast and lunch altogether, instead choosing to snack throughout the day. (ANI)
