Parents are hiding treats around the home to stop their children and partners eating them, a survey said yesterday.

Two-thirds of adults surveyed (64 per cent) admit they hide their nibbles, with the average UK householder having four different stashes – from underwear drawers to the bedside table. 

Even so most hidey-holes are found out.
