More and more people are opting for and consuming ready-made food instead of freshly cooked food. Does this practice has more advantages than disadvantages? Discuss

It is generally believed that ready-to-eat
food
is becoming popular as compared to homemade
food
. In my opinion, I consider that the benefits of packaged
foods
outweigh the shortcoming of consuming them. Despite the minimal drawbacks below,I believe the benefits of having packaged
foods
are far more than the advantages.
Firstly
, ready-made
food
is easily available. Those who are working and do not get time to cook can easily have their
food
which can be cooked in no time.
For instance
, vegetable oats,upma,idli etcetera.
Secondly
, it is
also
useful for those who do not possess cooking skills because ready-to-eat
food
is quite easy to make by adding just water.
Thirdly
, a person can relish a variety of cuisines as many companies are making
such
foods
and that too in different varieties
such
as North Indian, South Indian, Gujarati and other famous eateries. Admittedly, there are some obstacles as well.One is that packed
foods
are less nutritious as compared to homemade
food
because preservatives are added to make them unperishable.
However
, the AGRO or ISI marked companies do take care of nutritional value. Another reason is, these
foods
are costlier than seasonal fruits and vegetables as they are transported from different states so the cost is added.
Although
,
this
is not the reason to worry about who are earning well. To conclude, the benefits of packed
foods
are far more than the drawbacks of it as these are suitable for working people because it is easy to get.
Moreover
, without the skills of cooking, people can enjoy different
foods
from different states.

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
