Stereotype: lunch

Sunday lunch exactly at noon?

This summer SURS is breaking the stereotypes about the residents of Slovenia. Is it true that a classic Sunday lunch consists of beef soup, pork roast, sautéed potatoes and salad? And that it is served at exactly noon? How many families in Slovenia are eagerly waiting for the clock hands to align?

In 2018, there were 577,544 families in Slovenia with almost 1.68 million members (81% of the total population). Most families with children had one child (55%); 36% of families with children had two children. There were 15 families with 10 or more children.

In 2020, 92% of people in Slovenia aged 16 or more got together with friends or relatives for a drink or lunch at least once a month.

In 2020, on average, each household member in Slovenia consumed 14 kg of beef, 48 kg of potatoes and 11 kg of lettuce at home. It is not known how many of each were used as Sunday lunch ingredients.

In this case, the stereotype cannot be confirmed, as we have not yet conducted a survey on when the residents of Slovenia eat lunch and how eagerly they wait for it.
