Food Choice

Making the right decision

Food Choices

As more women started to go out to work and lifestyles became more pressurised, so food choices changed to accommodate this.

The carefully prepared, fresh daily meals were replaced by convenience and processed foods.

Today’s children are so accustomed to fast foods that in one school survey, 7 out of 10 thought that potatoes grew on trees! Most people do not eat food with the thought of it giving them the nourishment they need for health. They see it more as a source of energy and something to satisfy hunger. Most processed foods are purchased for colour, taste, texture, calorie content and ease of preparation - not for nutritional value.
