When was the last time you stepped inside your kitchen, donned an apron, and cooked yourself something?
Really cooked for yourself. Microwave meals and bunging a pizza inside a preheated oven don’t count. If you’re struggling for an answer, fear not, you’re not alone in falling out of love with your kitchen – as little as three in 10 Brits cook themselves a meal from scratch every day.
Why is this? Is our work-hard/play-hard culture taking its toll on our diets? Is technology making it too easy to turn to takeaways? Or, with more healthy options available, do we see regular takeaways as part of a healthy balanced lifestyle?
In order to figure this out, we surveyed 2,000 Brits from across the UK to lift the lid on the nation’s feeding habits, and uncover the changing behaviours and attitudes by age and gender. We also partnered with industry experts to get their opinions on the findings and what the future has in store for the average British menu.
