The Hartman group has completed a recent consumer survey on eating habits and found that among US consumers in 2012, more than half of all eating occasions were snacks on a daily basis.
More consumers said they considered eating smaller meals more frequently to be healthier and that snacking helps to bridge the gap between meals.
Although most said snacks need to be healthy, chips and soda topped the list for consumers who snack.
If you are in the consumer snacks business, how have you found this research to pan out in your business?
