A third of UK office workers are “regularly” forced to eat their evening meals at their desks, according to a Just-Eat.co.uk web survey of 1,231 of its visitors. A quarter of employees said they only ever managed to have dinner with their families at weekends.

Of those polled, three-quarters said they eat at work because of a heavy workload, while half said it was “frowned upon” to leave work on time to go home for dinner. Even 55% of people working at home said they eat from their desks while 59% said they work at the dinner table during meals.
