How many times do you make a homemade meal a week? How many times do you eat out, or eat fast food? A new report from University of Michigan shows that Generation X adults, those of us born between 1961 and 1981, prepare an average of 10 meals a week and eat out or fast food an average of 3 times a week. The report also shows that Generation X men are very involved in grocery shopping and cooking in the kitchen, a much different role than that of their fathers.
People of Generation X are also more informed about their food than their parents were. They are concerned about how their food is grown, usually preferring to buy organic when available. They know that food isn’t just fuel, it’s something that can contribute to good health, bring families together and mark special occasions with friends and family.
