What’s on the menu for most Americans? Not a healthy meal.
When it comes to choosing a restaurant, most people don’t take healthiness into account.
The market research company Technomic found that 21 percent of members of Generation X
—people born 1965 to 1982—chose either “often” or “very often” when asked: “How often do you choose restaurants based on the healthfulness of their menu?”
It’s even less for baby boomers at just 18 percent.
The healthiest generation is the youngest: 31 percent of millennials, those born from 1982 to 2000, say they take healthy food options into account.
A recent report found that more than one-third of residents in 12 states are now obese
. States with the highest obesity rates are mainly in the Midwest and South.
