Deskfast – The Most Important Meal of the Day
With our careers being more important to us than ever, a new trend has begun to take over the workplace – deskfast.
Our lifestyles have changed. Our mornings are busier, our time is precious, and the demands of life are intense. We might often find ourselves rushing to the office earlier in the morning so that we can stay behind later at night, just to get the work done.
It’s no surprise that the percentage of people skipping breakfast is slowly on the incline. Sitting down to eat breakfast in a morning is not at the top of everyone’s ‘to-do’ list.
In 2015, statistics showed that up to half of Britons admitted to regularly skipping breakfast. With recent studies claiming that skipping breakfast could significantly raise the risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity, many of us have begun to take our breakfasts to work with us.
Don’t Skip It, Deskfast It
The third Deskfast Day is being held on Wednesday 28th March as part of the national ‘A Better Breakfast’ campaign – a campaign aiming to tackle the declining number of people eating breakfast. The campaign aims to adults, children, and teenagers in the UK to enjoy breakfast at home, on-the-go, at work, and even at school. With so many options on how and where to eat your breakfast, there’s no excuse not to get involved!
Breakfast brands in support of the ‘Better Breakfast’ campaign include: belVita, Jordans, Marmite, PG Tips, Actimel, Hovis, and HP Sauce.
As part of the campaign, celebrants are encouraged to showcase pictures of their ‘deskfasts’ on social media, using the hashtag #DeskfastDay to connect with a community of other hungry office workers.
If you have an office job and work at a desk, the best way to celebrate Deskfast Day would be to eat your breakfast at it this morning and give yourself a great start to the day. Whether you’re in the mood for cereal, toast, a croissant, or a breakfast bar, making a simple change on Deskfast Day could lead to a healthier and more energetic you.
Here at the Post Office Shop, we have a huge range of affordable breakfast snacks for you to choose from. When you’re drinking a PG Tips or Tetley Tea cuppa and tucking in to a Nestle snack, you won’t be left out this Deskfast Day.
