How do you like to eat your dinner? Do you like to watch something while you gobble some food? Or do you like to not be distracted from the food at all? Well, according to a recent study, Dutch people like to keep their phones away and their Netflix off, reports RTL Nieuws.
These results are from a study conducted by the Nutrition Centre with more than 1000 Dutchies.
Spending more time for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Dutchies are spending more time enjoying their meals than they did five years ago. They take about 29 minutes for dinner. 60% of them like to eat more consciously and three-quarters of them eat at the table. They’re also giving more importance to breakfast and lunch: they schedule in around 15 minutes for breakfast and 21 minutes for lunch.
Dutchies are eating more consciously
Only 4% of the responders on the study said that they scroll through social media while they are having their dinner. 19% of them prefer not to be distracted but 25% of them said that they like to watch something while they eat. A whopping 52% of them said that they talk to a loved one.
Dutch people are not only eating more consciously but they also like to eat food that they cooked themselves! They try to make food at least 5.5 times a week, while ready-made meals or takeaway is eaten only once a week. However, people over 55 cook more often than young people. They also eat more attentively than younger people do.
