Takeaway and restaurant meals form a significant part of the UK diet. According to Department of Health statistics, more than 1 in 4 people in the UK eat out or purchase takeaway food on more occasions than they eat at home during the week. Fast food often contains a disproportionate amount of saturated fat and salt and is recognised as having a significant impact on rising levels of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in the UK.
