Sydney, May 25 (ANI): A new survey has revealed that most customers choose full-fat items when buying fast food and ignore the healthier options.
The survey, which included 26 Subway and McDonald's outlets in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, showed less than 3 per cent of customers bought food promoted as a healthy choice.
Griffith University researcher Louise Atkinson said older women in groups were more likely to choose the healthier option.
"[Healthy] purchasers were 14 years older [on average than diners consuming full-fat meals]; 80 per cent of them were female; and they were more likely to be dining with other people," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Atkinson as saying.
She said the findings were not surprising.
"A lot of people don't tend to go to fast-food outlets to choose a healthy option. [However] it is concerning to realise they are offering it, but [so] few people are choosing it," she said. (ANI)
