餐厅消费比例-雅思写作混合图-雅思小作文范文 percentage of food budget on restaurant meals
The charts below show the percentage of food budget the average family spent on restaurant meals in different years. The graph shows the number of meals eaten in fast food restaurants and sit-down restaurants.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.
The given illustration compares the amounts spent on restaurant foods and on home cooking foods in four different years and gives data on the number of meals eaten in two different restaurant types.
As is presented in the pie chart, initially in 1970, 90% of the total food budget was spent on home-made foods while only 10% was spent on restaurant foods. The amount spent on restaurant meals increased to 15% in 1980 and further to 35% in 1990. Finally, in 2000, an average family spent half of the total budget on restaurant meals and that shows a rapid increase in the people’s habit of having meals in restaurants.
In the line graph, we can observe that in 1970, the fast foods and sit-down restaurant meals were taken 20 thousand times each, and over time these numbers kept increasing. Finally, in 2000, more than 90 thousand fast food meals were eaten while the sit-down restaurant meals were eaten 50 thousand times a year. This indicates the changes in people’s habit of eating out and the popularity of restaurant foods over home-made foods.
In summary, over the 30 years’ time, people adopted the habit of eating out at restaurants and the fast-food shops gained more popularity over sit-down restaurants.
