Health and environmental concerns are leading Americans to change their eating habits, according to “The Way We Eat,” an Advantage Solutions infographic.
Seven out of 10 drivers of food purchases are related to health and diet restrictions and nearly 60% of Americans say they are concerned about their diet’s impact on their health and appearance.
Evolving attitudes about food are leading to greater exploration of alternative diets, as a full one-third of households have at least one member who is vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian or flexitarian. More than half of Americans are interested in learning more about plant-based diets.
Asked what they’d be willing to do to alter livestock’s impact on climate change, more than 60% say they’d eat less meat.
“The Way We Eat” compiles statistics from Halverson Group, an Advantage Marketing Partners agency; Barclays Research; FMI; GlobalData; International Food Information Council Foundation; Mintel; Nielsen and Today’s Dietitian.
