Younger Consumers Drive Global Snacking Trend

July 13, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A report on global snacking trends finds that increasing numbers of consumers – especially younger folks – are taking their nutrition in “modular” fashion, rather than in the traditional three-squares-a-day scheme. Overall, a third of consumers regularly snack, but 40 percent of Millennials (18 – 34) are routine snackers, according to researcher Canadean. Less than a quarter (23 percent) of people age 65 or older say they snack frequently. The main reasons or occasions for snacking include: energy boost, de-stressing or indulging, watching a movie, attending a sporting event, or socializing.
