1. Article- Healthy Eating at the Cinema?
March 22, 2010.

It explores the idea that healthier snacks need to be introduced into candy bars at the cinema and that changing eating habits may be vital for our health in the next decade. The article suggests a range of healthier options that should be considered to be consumed at the cinema before the choice is made to purchase unhealthy convenience foods.
