IFIC Food & Health Survey Shows Relation To Eating Habits & Stress Levels

May 26, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
The International Food Information Council’s 2022 Food and Health Survey revealed that consumers are more stressed out and are trying to become healthier through diet changes. Slightly more than half of all consumers say they are following a diet or eating pattern, increasing to 52 percent from 39 percent in 2021. The top four eating patterns consumers say they are following are clean eating, mindful eating, calorie counting and plant-based. Stress is inevitably affecting these eating choices. 56 percent of consumers reported feeling at least somewhat stressed during the last six months. IFIC found 54 percent who tried to alleviate stress through eating have made healthier food choices. However, one in four consumers claim they always or often eat when they feel stressed. Of those who have felt very stressed in the last six months, nearly three in 10 snack at least three times a day.
