Your “Healthy” Supermarket Lunch Deal
30 Teaspoons of Sugar!

Supermarket Meal Deals

It's a daily occurrence, people head out to their local supermarket at lunchtime to pick something quick and tasty to fill their tums, and most don't even bat an eye. 

After all, grabbing a sarnie and a bottle of juice is way better for you than chowing down a greasy burger from Maccy D's – right?

Well, truth be told, a new study has shown that this may not be the case.

According to researchers at the Queen Mary University of London, the common lunchtime meal deal may contain up to a whopping 30 teaspoons of sugar – 23 teaspoons above your RDA of seven!

That's the same as chowing down 79 chocolate fingers in one sitting, or having a very, very, very, very sweet cuppa…

No it's not all found in your Roast Chicken Salad Sandwich, but rather the extras you can purchase along with it including sugary drinks, chocolate, sweets and crisps.

This is why health campaigners at the Queen Mary University of London known as Action on Sugar are pushing for supermarkets and high street stores to remove such items from their meal deals in order to help people get, and stay, healthy.

And when you consider the huge health risks associated with over-indulging your sweet tooth, it's not a bad cause to get behind:


Eating too much sugar is linked to obesity, type 2 diabetes, cancer and tooth decay.

Supermarkets pretend to be on the side of their customer’s health to encourage loyalty, but this survey clearly shows that they are not.

The government now needs to take decisive action to ban all promotions of unhealthy foods.


Strong words from Professor Graham MacGregor - Chairman and Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at Queen Mary's.
