Do you put your convenience before your health?

The shops are full of ‘convenience’ foods these days: packets and tins of prepared food which require no kitchen skills but which provide a ready to eat meal in just a few minutes. Sadly, these ‘convenience’ foods are often low in fibre, vitamins and minerals and high in fat. If you’re living on a diet of convenience foods you could be endangering your health.
