»Survey keys on post-baby boom food preferences
Though not quite ready for life in a senior living setting, Generation X nutrition preferences could very well shape what facilities serve in the coming years, according to an exhaustive study by the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation, in partnership with the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR).
Both organizations recognized results revealing Gen X food and health attitudes, and their behaviors and perceptions related to diet and cancer risk.
Among the findings:
• American Gen X consumers are much more focused on weight loss than other age groups. Moreover, a majority see a definitive link between lifestyle factors and the risk of developing cancer.
• Nearly half say their purchases are impacted by whether a food or beverage might reduce their risk of developing cancer, although prevention of heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions also are cited at similar levels.
