Women prefer prawns - that was the clear message that emerged yesterday from a survey of lunchtime sandwich-eating habits.

Four hundred and fifty young working women took part in the survey by Bread for Life - a campaign encouraging people to eat more bread as part of a healthy balanced diet - and one in five chose prawn on wheat germ bread as their favourite. Donna Dawson, a psychologist, feels this choice reflects an independent high flier with an interest in health and fitness.

The bacon butty came a close second with 19 per cent of votes, revealing a traditional, romantic, sociable and home-loving woman.

Egg salad on brown bread also pulled in 19 per cent of votes indicating a confident but cautious personality type.
