PC dinner replaces the TV dinner

Sixty per cent of Britons have eaten their main evening meal while sitting at their computer, a survey has found.

More than a fifth regularly ate dinner at their computer, according to the online viewing service SeeSaw.com.

Of the 2,000 people surveyed, 15 per cent said they watched TV on their PC while eating a meal, with a third saying they were more likely to eat dinner in front of a computer than they were 12 months earlier.

Nearly a quarter (23 per cent) said their PC had replaced the TV as the main source of evening entertainment.

SeeSaw spokesman John Keeling said: "For many across the nation, the PC dinner has replaced the TV dinner."
