Survey Finds Young Europeans Want Snacks That Support Mental Health

July 27, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The research, commissioned by EIT Food and conducted among 2,000 18-24-year-olds in five countries, found that more than half of young Europeans track their food in some way and women especially are actively seeking healthy snacks that prioritize mental health. Many respondents – in fact, 55 percent of those surveyed – think that including calorie counts on food labels and menus can be detrimental to mental health, a figure that rises to 62 percent in the U.K., 60 percent in France, and 61 percent in Germany. Unfortunately, the research shows that young people are being let down. Across Europe, 18–24-year-olds find healthy food more expensive and harder to find on the go, and they feel they lack the information and advice they need to make informed nutritional decisions. The research, conducted in June and July by Opinium, focused on Gen Z-ers in France, Germany, Poland, Spain, and the U.K.
