One in six young people eat fast food twice a
day, according to the BBC Good Food Nation Survey on eating habits.

In the 16 to 20-year-old category one in six ate fast food at least twice a
day, while among the 21 to 34-year-olds one in eight ate the same.



The study of more than 5,000 people found that half thought “a meal
isn’t a meal without meat”. However,
the same proportion were unaware how much meat is a recommended daily amount.

‘The Department of Health advices an average of no more than 70g per day, which is the equivalent of two-and-a-half rashers of bacon.’

The Department of Health advices an average of no more than 70g per day,
which is the equivalent of two-and-a-half rashers of bacon, but nearly one in
four think it is at least double that.

The survey found a fifth of men (21%) and 32% of 16 to 21-year-old men and
women eat meat at least three times a day.

The typical adult now eats meat at least twice a day and has only six
meat-free days a month.

Christine Hayes, brand editorial director of BBC Good Food, said it showed
it was “easy to be confused about the amount of meat one can enjoy while
still eating a healthy, balanced diet”.

She added: “Those who do eat meat can still cook a Sunday roast and eat
the occasional steak when balanced with some meat-free dishes.”
