Nowadays, with the advancement in science and technology, convenience food is becoming more and more popular because of the benefits it brings. Moreover, some people believe that packed food will eventually replace home-cooked meals. But in my opinion, I strongly disagree with this statement because traditional food is still important and plays an irreplaceable role in daily life.
Convenience food saves our time. Imagine if you have an unscheduled meeting and you don’t have time to cook for yourself, convenience food is an attractive option in this situation. Besides, packed food also ensures nutrition at an acceptable level and is helpful for whom don’t know how to cook. Thus it is undeniable that convenience food holds an important position in daily life, especially in young people.
Firstly, convenience food is not as fresh and delicious as traditional food because chemicals are added to prolong the life of packed food, these chemicals even though protect the cuisine just fine. A recent survey conducted by a Youtuber showed that 90% of the total Indian population still prefer freshly cooked food, as they taste much better.
Secondly, packed food is not nutritious enough to ensure a healthy body because convenience only contains some basic components, preservative chemicals so continuously using packed food can lead to unhealthy bodies and even some diseases such as obesity, stomachache,...
Finally, replacing traditional food with convenience food will make the cuisine culture, which is preserved for thousands of years as well as reflecting the cultural merits of each nation be faded.
Overall, convenience food brings many useful values for consumers. However, traditional food and traditional methods of food preparation still play an irreplaceable role in our life.
