(ECNS) -- At a restaurant in Sichuan, light meals cooked with broccoli, chicken breast, carrots and brown rice were prepared and delivered to consumers on Wednesday at noon.

Takeaway orders here have multiplied since we opened four years ago, said Chen Ling, the owner of the restaurant.

A light meal, which originated from afternoon tea in Europe in the 17th century, now means low-sugar, low-fat, low-salt, high-fiber, etc.

China's light meal and meal replacement market will reach 120 billion yuan (about $18.78 billion) in 2022, which shows a change in Chinese dieting concepts, according to statistics from Euromonitor International.

Li Yun, a nutrition expert, said the light meal fever shows the Chinese people's pursuit of health, but whether these meals are healthy needs to be verified.

A long-term balance of carbohydrates, fat and protein, coupled with regular exercise, is the really healthy lifestyle.
