More than two-thirds of office workers have sandwiches for lunch, according to new research.

In a survey, carried out by Ipsos Mori for BaxterStorey, researchers found that 92% of office workers eat lunch, 78% are regular snackers, and of these, 20% snack on crisps while 27% snack on biscuits.

"Of those who rarely or never eat lunch, 27% also never eat breakfast during the working week," said the report. Only 17% eat breakfast every day and the same number eat breakfast between just one and three times in the week.

Face-to-face research was conducted from 28 September to 2 November 2007. A nationally representative sample of 1,015 office workers aged 15-plus in the UK were interviewed.
