Nutritional content of supermarket ready meals and recipes by television chefs in the United Kingdom: cross sectional study

“Better” (dietary) food doesn’t mean “better” (tasting) food!

23 December 2012

The comparison performed omitted a crucial point. Taste of the food should not be forgotten! It also contributes to health. “Better” (dietary) food doesn’t mean “better” (tasting) food! Healthy diet cannot be followed without taste and pleasure. One can postulate that supermarket ready meals and recipes by television chefs were not comparable regarding this criterion. Such comparison should have been included in the study. It should be considered like a risk/benefit ratio.
