Distractions and F&B

While this study mainly concentrated on what happens when people eat lunch while playing computer games (hint: They eat more), it also may hold true for eating during other types of distractions. Like, say, the programming you have going on at a luncheon -- people did eat more when listening to a recorded story while eating, as they did when eating with friends. So if you want to save a bit on your F&B, it might help to let people eat undistracted and hold off on the presentations until after they're done chowing down. Plus it makes for a better experience for speaker and audience alike.
