Sad, on so many levels..

(Reuters) – Almost a third of young Britons have passed off a
ready-made meal as their own creation in order to impress someone,
according to a survey by the Department of Health.

Women were the
worst offenders, with 40 percent saying they had claimed food bought in
a shop as their own, compared to 22 percent of men.

And seven percent of the 1,000 16-24-year-olds questioned said they regularly claimed credit for food they had bought.

research, conducted as part of the department’s 5 A DAY campaign to
encourage people to eat more fruit and vegetables, also found that one
in 10 had never cooked a proper meal for themselves because they “don’t
know how.”

It also discovered that women were more impressed by a man’s cooking ability than whether they owned a flashy car.
