PC dinner

Study: Three-fifths of people eat their evening meal in front of their computer.

Rise in Britons swapping TV dinners for PC dinners, according to a survey showing how many people eat while using the computer.  The study found three-fifths of people had settled down to eat their evening meal in front of a laptop or desktop.

And more than a fifth eaten their dinner hunched over their computer on a regular basis, according to online viewing service SeeSaw.com.

A total of 15 per cent of the 2,000 people in the survey said they had watched TV on their PC while eating a meal.

A third of those in the study said they were more likely to eat dinner in front of a computer than they were 12 months earlier.

Come Dine with Me was the most popular choice of show for online munchers.

Nearly a quarter (23 per cent) said their PC had replaced the TV as the main source of evening entertainment.

John Keeling, platform controller for SeeSaw, commented: ”Millions of British people cannot tear themselves away from the internet, even for dinner. The growth of the PC dinner is a remarkable new trend and for many across the nation, has now replaced the traditional TV dinner.”
