Please give a feedback for this task 1 writing
The pie charts illustrate the amount of sodium, saturated fat, and added sugar an average person in the USA consumes during breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. The consumption of each of these components appears to be least at breakfast. The intake of sodium and saturated fats is highest at dinner, while that of added sugar is highest during snacks.
The maximum intake of sodium is at dinner time at 43%. It was 29% at lunch. The least intake of sodium was at breakfast and snack-time, both at 14%.
Also, the highest intake of saturated fats was at dinner at 37%. In second place was lunch at 26%. In third place was snack-time at 21%. In final place was breakfast at 16%.
Finally, in contrast to sodium and saturated fats intake, the consumption of added sugars peaked at snack-time (42%). It was 23% and 19% at dinner, and lunch respectively. The lowest intake of added sugars was at breakfast.
Unmonitored intake of sodium, saturated fats, and added sugar may cause detrimental effects to health. The increased use of sodium and saturated fats at dinner time may hint towards a trend of consuming less healthy food items after a long day’s work which may be fast-food and processed food. The increased intake of added sugars at snack-time may be due to increased coffee and beverage use during break-time. These negative trends may be reversed by creating an increased awareness about the patterns of food intake.
