Com­bin­ing meal time with screen time

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

By eat­ing din­ner in front of the TV or hav­ing lunch at your com­puter, you’ll of­ten con­sume more food than you need. One ex­pla­na­tion is that screen time is dis­tract­ing. It blurs your ‘food mem­ory’— and new re­search shows that when you can’t re­call how much you ate dur­ing a meal, you’ll con­sume 25 per cent more food than usual at the next one.
