Millennials are spending three times the amount their parents spend on eating and drinking away from home, according to research by food institute FSIN.
The report shows that people born between 1981 and 2000 are spending an average of €1,512 on eating and drinking in cafes and restaurants every year, compared with €519 for babyboomers.
‘Food is a driver in the lifestyle of millennials and generation X,’ FSIN director Jan-Willem Grievink told news website Nu.nl. ‘They use what they eat and drink to show what they stand for.’
However, despite the trend towards vegetarianism and oat or soya milk in coffee ‘millennials still eat a lot of fast food’, Grievink said.
