We are sure you’ll agree that lunch times in the office are never the most exciting thing - and if you’re like us, a butty and cuppa will suffice until dinner. But, don’t worry - we are not alone. In actual fact, there are one in three of us who continue to eat the same lunch every day - with 70 per cent of workers agreeing they are stuck in a lunch rut with the average Brit having a repertoire of just three meals that they rotate each week - with the ham sandwich coming out on top. Food delivery chain, Deliveroo, carried out the the survey to find out what people were choosing to eat come 12 o’clock as part of their new programme, Lame Lunch Amnesty on Tuesday, to give workers the chance to ‘upgrade their soggy sandwiches to restaurant quality food’.
The survey revealed many people continued to eat these plain lunches are they felt it was fairly healthy - and they were trying to stay slim. Here are the top 10 most popular lunches for the UK office worker...
