Here are the top 30 products the British use for comfort

Nearly one in five (17%) say their lift only lasts a few minutes when they switch to certain comfort products, while 31% said their mood lift lasts up to an hour.

People are most likely to turn to certain foods when they are sad or feeling down (52%), while 48% do so when they are stressed.

And, according to a OnePoll study, more than four in ten (42 percent) switch to food for comfort when the weather is cold and rainy.

More than half admitted that their usual food is unhealthy, but 69% say that healthier food is too expensive, although they would like it.

A quarter (24%) said they lacked inspiration, and 63% said they would like to eat more healthy food.

One in five (20 percent) say they don’t have time to cook healthy meals, while more than half (53 percent) of parents surveyed said they simply let their kids choose what they want to eat.

Julie Ashfield, Aldi UK Managing Director of Purchasing, said: “At Aldi we strive to deliver the best quality and value to all of our customers – that is what these recipes are for.

“All recipes include ingredients that Nigel regularly adds to Team GB athletes’ meal plans and can all be found at your local Aldi store, showing that we don’t have to be an Olympian to eat like one.

“In addition to recipes, our Get Set to Eat Fresh program also aims to promote the benefits of eating fresh and healthy foods. Working with our team ambassadors in the UK, we have helped educate over 2 million children about the importance of a well-balanced and nutrient-dense diet.”

Gemma Thickett, Mental Health UK Counseling and Information Services Manager, said: “Eating right can help our emotional and physical well-being.

“Proper nutrition can mean that we are at a healthy weight and can manage our weight in the long term, we eat the food we need to stay healthy, like fruits and vegetables, and that eating is fun!”
