Online home appliance retailer, appliancesdirect.co.uk surveyed over 1000 UK adults to find more than half (56%) will prepare their meals for the week ahead in January. Of the #mealprepsundays grown-ups, 41% cited saving money as the number one reason for doing so, while almost a third (32%) say they prep meals in advance as it is healthier and 29% cite helping reach their fitness goals as their main motive.

More than one-in-five say this practice will save them time in the long run, a further 19% say prepping means they are less likely to throw away food in the fridge.

Mark Kelly, marketing manager at appliancesdirect.co.uk says, “The new year is a great opportunity for the nation to start the year on the right track, and the research shows just how many of us are doing this with our food consumption.

“It’s clear to see that people are making healthier choices as a result of preparing meals in advance, but as the research shows it also helps to save on the amount of food that is thrown out as well as being very cost friendly. There are a number of affordable options out there from juicers, air fryers, food processers and soup makers, so that it is more convenient for Brits to prepare their food ahead of time, so there’s no need to worry about cost after the expense of Christmas.”

According to the survey, those aged 25 to 34 years old are the most likely to meal prep, with 39% confessing to doing so already.
