History of World Junk Food day

The day is believed to have marked by a diet-conscious individual or group who desired to eat junk food, without guilt, at least one day a year. If we look into the history of it, Junk food coincides with the advent of packaged foods throughout the late 1900s. Of course, for decades, home-cooked meals were still the standard. However, after World War 2, junk food really started to take off. As more and more people started traveling, the desire to have different kinds of cuisines manufactured by a vast network of food chains came into the picture and it then started gaining popularity.
