CDC infographic explores impact of eating away from home, obesity
January 24, 2013
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a new infographic on Jan. 22 to coincide with the time when many Americans have returned to their busy schedules and are challenged to stick to New Year’s resolutions.
Go Light When You Have A Bite, shown below, outlines how Americans have shifted their food spending between 1960 and 2011 and the impact that eating four meals away from home – the number of meals the average American eats away from home each week – can have on waistlines. The infographic also includes simple solutions for eating healthier when we’re on the go.
