Snacking more than usual? You’re not alone.
Working from home and unlimited access to the fridge has led to a 51 percent increase in snacking occasions in the US, with more people being drawn to typical comfort foods, such as chocolate and cake.
“Being stocked up on healthy snacks is essential to staying healthy in lockdown,” states nutritionist Jenna Hope.
“[Eating out of boredom] is common when you’re working from home.
“Ensuring regular mealtimes helps to maintain balanced blood sugar levels across throughout the day which, in turn, can prevent you constantly opening the fridge.”
