The holidays are behind us and it is back to work, back to school and back to everything in between for many families. We live busy lives and sometimes that means we have to grab food on the go, which sometimes isn’t the healthiest for us.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) new infographic, Go Light When You Grab a Bite, highlights how our busy schedules have changed our eating behaviors and how that in turn impacts our weight. Research shows that the money spent on food away from home in the United States has increased from 26% in 1960 to 49% in 2011. That’s a big jump! The infographic also offers solutions for those days when we’re too busy to make our meals at home.
