Un sondaggio a livello nazionale ha riscontrato che quattro australiani su cinque ritengono che un pasto sostanzioso riunisca la famiglia, eppure più della metà degli interpellati è troppo sotto stress al lavoro per poter cucinare la cena.

Lo studio, commissionato da Australian Lamb, ha rilevato che circa due terzi degli intervistati si sentono in colpa per l'utilizzo di app per la consegna di cibo.

Per molte culture, cucinare e condividere un pasto è una tradizione importante. Ma il rito di consumare un pasto a tavola ogni sera appare un'abitudine morente.

Oltre mille persone sono state intervistate sulle loro abitudini alimentari e più della metà ha dichiarato che lo stress da lavoro sta contribuendo a cucinare di meno nelle sere delle giornate lavorative.

Questo nonostante l'aumento dei celebrity chef in Australia e la popolarità di programmi televisivi sulla cucina come questo.

"I spend a lot of my time travelling the world and experiencing different cultures through food. But this time it's a little but different, I'm not so much travelling away as I am coming home. Good to see you!"

L'ente Meat and Livestock Australia, che promuove Australian Lamb, ha commissionato la ricerca. Graeme Yardy è il manager del mercato interno.

"We love to see people, you know doing amazing things with food. The trend of kitchens in restaurants that are open to the public and we can see what is going on and we can see some of that craft. I think one of the things, probably one of the other less desirable impacts is it's made us a bit scared to actually have a go."

Anche la nota dietista Fran Foulkes-Taylor di Foodbank WA ha notato uno spostamento delle famiglie sulla scelta di ciò che è conveniente mangiare.

Non dà la colpa ai servizi di consegna di cibo come UberEats e Deliveroo, ma vuole comunque incoraggiare la gente a cucinare i propri pasti.

"The environment we live in definitely has an impact on what foods we choose to eat so it can't all be placed on the individual. But certainly and those services are just sort of finding a gap in the market and taking advantage of that."

Mentre chi ha fame può farsi consegnare a casa pasti pronti, la Foulkes-Taylor afferma che mangiare cibi fatti in casa insieme ad altri riduce il rischio di obesità.

Lo studio indica anche che i motivi per ordinare cibo da asporto varia dal sentirsi troppo stanchi al tempo di preparazione percepito.

"So it can actually take less time to prepare a quick healthy meal at home but it's just about having the knowledge and skills to do this. So I think often it comes down to lack of ideas and that sort of brain power takes time and it takes preparation."

Un precedente studio del 2011 ha evidenziato che mangiare i pasti con i genitori è una delle attività che migliora il rendimento degli studenti a scuola.

E per quanto riguarda i genitori, un altro studio più recente ha riscontrato che consumare un pasto principale a tavola può aumentare la loro soddisfazione nella vita fino al 40%.

La dottoressa Katherine Livingstone della Deakin University tiene lezioni sulla nutrizione della popolazione e afferma che ci sono anche benefici sociali nel mangiare a casa.

"So we know families who cook together, you know it's learning life skills they can pass onto the next generation. It's building more social interconnections between the family members. Often we don't see that as well with more frequent takeaway consumption. So I think it's a really interesting trend noting from a social context but also a health perspective as well."

L'83% delle persone intervistate concorda che i pasti cucinati in casa contribuiscono a mantenere la famiglia unita.

ENGLISH

A national survey shows four in five Australians believe a hearty meal brings the household together - yet more than half are too stressed at work to cook the evening meal. 

A study commissioned by Australian Lamb has found about two thirds of respondents felt guilty about using food delivery apps.

For many cultures, cooking and sharing a meal together is an important tradition.

But the ritual of eating a meal at the dinner table every night appears to be a dying habit.

More than one thousand people were surveyed about their eating habits and more than half reported work stress is contributing to less weeknight cooking.

That's despite a rise in celebrity chefs in Australia and the popularity of cooking television shows like this one.

"I spend a lot of my time travelling the world and experiencing different cultures through food. But this time it's a little but different, I'm not so much travelling away as I am coming home. Good to see you!"

The industry body Meat and Livestock Australia which promotes Australian Lamb commissioned the research.

Graeme Yardy is the Domestic Market Manager.

"We love to see people, you know doing amazing things with food. The trend of kitchens in restaurants that are open to the public and we can see what is going on and we can see some of that craft. I think one of the things, probably one of the other less desirable impacts is it's made us a bit scared to actually have a go."

Accredited practising dietitian Fran Foulkes-Taylor from Foodbank WA has also noticed a shift towards households choosing what is convenient to eat.

She isn't blaming food delivery services, like UberEats and Deliveroo but still wants to encourage people to cook their own meals.

"The environment we live in definitely has an impact on what foods we choose to eat so it can't all be placed on the individual. But certainly and those services are just sort of finding a gap in the market and taking advantage of that."

While hungry diners can have ready-made meals arrive on their doorstep but Ms Foulkes-Taylor says eating home-cooked food with others reduces the risk of obesity.

The study also shows the reasons for ordering takeaway food vary from feeling too tired to the perceived amount of preparation time involved.

"So it can actually take less time to prepare a quick healthy meal at home but it's just about having the knowledge and skills to do this. So I think often it comes down to lack of ideas and that sort of brain power takes time and it takes preparation ."

A previous 2011 study found eating meals with parents is one of the activities that improves students' performance at school.

And for parents, another more recent report found having a main meal at the table can increase their reported life satisfaction by up to 40 per cent.

Dr Katherine Livingstone from Deakin University lectures in population nutrition and says there are social benefits to eating at home too.

"So we know families who cook together, you know it's learning life skills they can pass onto the next generation. It's building more social interconnections between the family members. Often we don't see that as well with more frequent takeaway consumption. So I think it's a really interesting trend noting from a social context but also a health perspective as well. "

And 83 per cent of people surveyed agreed home cooked meals bring the household together.
