NEW YORK, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The healthy eating movement has been thriving in the U.S. and it accelerated under the Obama administration as First Lady Michelle Obama picked nutrition as her cause. For eight years, she spearheaded new programs designed to encourage Americans – especially children – to make better food choices.
With summer coming up, ReportLinker conducted a survey to examine Americans' health and eating habits.
Main findings show that:
When making nutrition choices
● Almost a third of Americans say they eat fast food weekly
● 84% of people don't eat 5 fruits and vegetables per day as advised by health professionals
● 70% of people are not ready to have a vegetarian meal at least once a week
● 47% of people eat meat everyday
● And for 69% of vegans and vegetarians, health is the prime reason for making this lifestyle change, while 19% say they made the switch out of concerns for the environment.
When it comes to physical activities:
● 72% of women are more likely to say they don't work out or play sports compared to 45% of men
● Millennials (aged 18 to 34) also tend to hit the trail or the gym more with 34% saying they train daily.
