Are lunch breaks becoming a luxury?

Paul Mitchell Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Hey Neighbours,
As workplaces seems to get busier and harder to leave behind thanks to smartphones and email, more people are giving up or missing out on a lunch break. Common lunch breaks are all but history, and 4/10 Kiwi workers always or often skip it altogether.
Do you manage to find time for lunch? If so, what are your favourite lunch spots?

Why we're putting quality first...

Cooper's Pet Kitchen

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

Get more bang for your dog’s bite with 50% OFF your first order with code NEIGHBOURLY.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what they’re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.
