ADULTS in Yorkshire and the North East don’t take enough time over their tea, a survey says.
A report by Selters, a German mineral water producer, found adults in the North East spent just 17 minutes on their evening meal.
Half of the 4,000 adults surveyed rushed their food because of busy lifestyles.
Indeed half said indigestion had been keeping them awake at night.
The survey revealed most people ate their dinner slouched on the sofa, with under a third sitting up at a table.
Common distractions stopping us concentrating on eating included the television (68%), mobile phones (37%) and home computers (68%).
