In view of the emergence of the concept of tea bags (it usually contains loose tea weighing around 3g), the Britons now drink an average of just eight cups of tea a week today - it is down from 23 in 1974.
Similar is the status of another favorite of the British - it is the fish and chips. This also appears to be on the way out. While the amount of chips has gone up significantly, the intake of white fish and takeaway fish have both more than halved between 1974 and 2014.
Regarding veggies - people continue to eat the same amount of fresh vegetables as they were 40 years ago, but greens are off the menu. Instead, consumption of courgettes, mushrooms, aubergines, and packs of stir fry veg are on the increase. These could be attributed to changing technology coupled with an increase in freezers and microwaves. The eating habits have shifted with consumption of ready meals and convenience meats increasing six-fold since 1974.
