Today's consumer no longer eats the standard three meals per day. Less than half (43%) of consumers in 2018 said they ate three meals a day with a few snacks between meals, compared to 53% who said so in 2016, according to Technomic. So foodservice providers who want to meet customer expectations have to recognize the growing consumer tendency to "graze" or snack.
But before you overhaul your menu with chips, pretzels and other munchies, keep in mind that snacking no longer means what it did in the past.
