We are unhealthy, unfit and overweight. If Scotland was a person, out GP might very well be having a quite word. Over the weekend, Scotland’s children are expected to eat an average of five Easter eggs, breaching the recommended daily intake of sugar by up to 16 times.
Now, depending on the size, five eggs is probably too many. However, it is not the occasional feast that’s our downfall, but the regular day-in day-out consumption of junk food.
But attempting to wear a culinary hair shirt all the time:
For example by insisting we are perfectly happy to celebrate Easter with a hard-boiled egg when we are not really is probably not something many of us can sustain for long.
If we normally eat a healthy diet and take a bit of exercise, the odd blow out probably us too much harm.
