A fifth of Brits under 30 has NEVER had a full English breakfast – and probably never will – The Sun

January 20, 2022

ONE in five people under 30 has never had a full English breakfast, a poll has revealed — and probably never will.

It found many young people cannot stomach the idea of a fry-up, preferring healthier alternatives like smashed avocado.

It has sparked fears that the cooked meal — a staple of British cuisine since Victorian times — could die out.

The survey of 2,000 Brits aged 18 to 30 found that black pudding was the main turn-off for 27 per of them, followed by bacon for 24 per cent.

The same proportion believe fry-ups are too greasy while 20 per cent associate the meal with heart attacks.

Forty-two per cent said it reminded them of men wearing vests in transport cafes.

A full English conjures up images of Brits abroad for 30 per cent, with 29 per cent cringing when they see holidaymakers tucking into a cooked breakfast.

Seventy-one per cent prefer healthier smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, smashed avocado on toast or oatmeal pancakes.
