Healthy snack options
Now more than ever, consumers are looking for more nutritious, environmentally conscious products and increasingly turning to plant-based protein — a trend that we believe will only grow in the coming years,” says a representative of Purchase, N.Y.-based PepsiCo.
Healthy snack options, like fresh fruits and vegetables, also serve as competition to better-for-you snacks, and are perceived by consumers as the healthiest option. Additionally, high prices for healthy snacks and lack of access to better-for-you (BFY) snacks for some consumers must be considered.
• Today’s population places a high value on their health and wellness, leading to a change in snacking behavior compared to previous generations
• This behavioral change means the BFY industry is growing and must innovate to meet growing demand
• A recent report reveals that 89% of Millennials consume at least one BFY snack weekly, and that Millennial parents are getting a new generation interested in BFY snacks.
