Healthy eating out
Many people are too busy to shop or cook and an increasing number of meals are eaten or prepared outside the home. Perhaps breakfast is picked up on the way to work, lunch is purchased at the local café or dinner is a take-away. Food is also served at hospitals, nursing homes, child care establishments, schools, canteens, aeroplanes, wedding parties, business conventions, the list goes on. The more we eat out, the more important it becomes that we chose healthy options from the menu and follow basic safety precautions. What’s more, we needn’t be afraid to ask for a doggy bag when we have leftovers!
