New research indicates millennials are replacing hearty meals with healthy snacks.

New research conducted by Welch’s Global Group and Surveygoo earlier in the year indicates that most American millennials between the ages of 18 and 35 choose to eat a healthy snack in place of a standard meal at least once a week. Some interesting findings from the study show:

  • 9 out of 10 millennials surveyed said they swapped breakfast for a healthy snack at least once a week.
  • More than half said they were too busy to sit down to a meal or can’t be bothered cooking.
  • Half snack at work and a third in the car.
  • Millennials tend to go for whole grains (45%), fruit (42%) or nuts (39%).
  • IRI research cites that two thirds of Australians use nutritional information when deciding on whether or not to purchase a snack.
