As are other all-encompassing offences/crimes, and the CPS have no
hesitation in using them to prosecute.
I can think of one such - the crime of conspiracy.
Translation: if they can't actually get you for murder, causing
explosions and so on, due to lack of hard evidence, they'll instead have
you for "conspiracy to..." if they can prove you talked to someone about
it beforehand.
The penalties are just as severe.
So really, there doesn't need to be a specific offence for you to get
"done" if another, all-encompassing offence already exists.
They still create new offences though, like using a mobile phone while
There was no need for that - they could have relied on driving without
due care & attention, or driving dangerously...

specific offences for eating and drinking whilst driving, but there
was a well publicised case of a driver being done for eating an apple

Huighway Code advice 148 lists activities to be avoided whilst driving
as they could be a cause of distraction. Plod will see these
activities / distractions as Driving without due care and *attention*.
(my emphasis).

Here's what 148 says:-

Safe driving and riding needs concentration.

Avoid distractions when driving or riding such as

•loud music (this may mask other sounds)
•trying to read maps
•inserting a cassette or CD or tuning a radio
•arguing with your passengers or other road users
•eating and drinking
