…πρόχειρο, γρήγορο και (γιατί όχι;) υγιεινό φαγητό

By Elena Margeti and Irene Pantazi

Fast  food has been around for thousands of years as part of the workforce’s diet. In medieval Greek it was called προσφάϊ. Τhe idea behind it has not changed.It was always meant to be the workman’s cheap-and-fast- meal. What has actually changed is that, fast food has become highly processed, a fact that  made it poorer in quality and dangerous to human health.This is an even more pressing issue if you take into account that the majority of its consumers are children and teenagers.An other thing that is different now, is that the term fast food has become international defining first of all an aspect of Western lifestyle.
