From a Banana sandwich to a Thai curry

Eating habits in the UK have changed enormously since I was a boy. Then it was toast and jam for breakfast, followed by a 1/4 pint of free school milk (later to be stolen by milk snatcher Thatcher) and lastly a school dinner.


At the end of the day there was banana sandwiches for tea. All punctuated by football…reading the results in the Daily Express followed by a game in the school yard with coats as goalposts, and finishing with a full blown match at home, where the goal was the area of the combined coal houses of our’s and the next door neighbour’s.

Yesterday, on my 63rd birthday I had a BLT for breakfast (memories of US breakfasts in the 1960’s) followed by Indian vegetable samosas at lunch (memories of student curries in Leeds ) and ending with a Thai green curry (my favourite).

How eating habits have changed.
