Four o’clock break, an essential meal!

Set in a key moment of the day, the four o’clock break is beneficial after school and even now during the holiday.

As the afternoon tea, French people love the taste break! 55% of people aged between 15-64 years old have at least 4 times per week a light meal between usual meals. Good healthy dietary habits avoid snacking.

Snacking is to eat something low in vitamins and minerals between meals (pastries, chocolate, soda…), under many excuses like stress, anxiety or just greed and actually participates in nutritional imbalance.

While the 4 o’clock break is handle by hunger and respond to the official recommendations. The perfect four-hour break consists to consume three dairy products a day, five fruits and complex carbohydrates.

Tasted during the afternoon, it also adapts to changing our lifestyles (quick lunch, late dinner …). Thus the balanced of this break offers a time of “petits bonheurs” and allows a real moment of conviviality.
