I read with great hilarity of Health Minister Leo Varadkar's plans for a healthier (and therefore a happy) public service. As a nurse in a very busy public hospital, we rarely get the chance to frequent the canteen.

Indeed, after 3pm and at the weekends there is no canteen left open in our hospital. Unlike the minister, of course, who has the choice of three restaurants and two bars.

We do, of course, endeavour to eat healthily - however, most days we are unable to take the full break time allocated and often as a result eat "on the hoof". I believe if it weren't for chocolate and toast, hospitals would not function at all!
