And if you haven’t got the time, it’s usually your go-to dinner when you’ve got no food in the house.
But you may want to think again next time you leap for the Dolmio pasta sauce because apparently you’re only meant to eat it ‘occasionally’.
The company behind Dolmio’s pasta sauce, Mars food, is introducing a new label telling consumers its products are high in fat, salt and sugar and should only be eaten once a week." Reported here and just about every Newspaper and media outlet in the UK.
Maybe I am over reacting, but when one of the worlds largest makers of processed foods tells us to only eat one of their products once a week, I am wondering if anyone should eat the product, ever. The truth is, I have not ate any of the Mars group products in almost eight years, or any other food that comes from a factory more akin to a petro-chem plant, than the farm or the sea.
Clearly The British Dietetic Associations high profile and highly vocal dietitian Catherine Collins, does not agree with me. So many times we see dietitians promoting very poor dietary advice, until this ceases, the un-checked epidemics of obesity and the often linked type two diabetes will continue.
