You’re likely sick of the sight of leftover sweets, chocolate and biscuits during the post-Christmas detox. 

But what to do with these remaining junk foods? Give them away? Bring them to book launches or family events? 

According to the latest Healthy Ireland survey, 62% of Irish adults are overweight and the Irish Dental Association estimates that the HSE does around 10,000 tooth extractions on children annually, so you might be better off arriving empty-handed. 

Today we want to know: Do you give away unwanted junk food after Christmas?


Poll Results:

No, I eat them all (4150)
Yes, every January (2847)
No, I bin them (1058)
