Camire quoted in Press Herald article on pandemic eating habits

Mary Ellen Camire, a professor of food science and human nutrition at the University of Maine, was quoted in a Portland Press Herald article about how people’s eating habits are changing during the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s a very stressful time. People are going to seek food, and food is certainly better than alcohol or other vices. But you do feel more tired and worn out when you gain weight, and so people might want to plan their snacks and treats, and spread them out a little bit more,” she said. “Facebook is full of people showing what they baked. Well, do you need that whole 9 x 13 pan of brownies? Could you freeze some of them to save for a day when you don’t have brownies, and take some of that temptation away?”
