Smith 1 Quincy Smith Mr. Adams ENG 112 – N05 10 November 2019 How Much is Convenient Worth? Fast food, junk food, street food, instant food, and packaged/processed foods can all be considered a convenient food. The world revolves around the consumption of food to live and grow from a child to an elder. Health, dieting, and weight is a large impact on the world, whether mental or physical. Convenient foods have a short term and long term negative impact on society specifically for health concerns. There are factors; such as, exercise, time, and price, that play a role in the influence to indulge, but overall the health risks of oneself and future generations lies in the food habits we create today. What makes convenient food so addicting? A surveyed report from statista shows the results from 1,002 US consumers between the ages 18-80 are asked why they choose convenient foods. Specifically, the survey was broken down between processed or packaged foods which concluded in very similar numbers. The highest percentages came back for being “convenient” was 59% and 61%. The next highest came back for “saving me time” with 48% and 49%. The third highest was reported for “easy to prepare” with 52% and 46%. The fourth highest for “affordable prices” was 38% and 43%. Todays society is about time and money. The faster you move the more money that can be made, but people still need to fit in the basics such as eating.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
