From How to Cook Recipes, this infographic takes a look at the food spending information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Expenditures Survey. The data shows how different generations spend their money when it comes to food, in terms of what they eat and how it compares the average money spent on food each month. The infographic compares the food spending across five main generations, which are the Silent Generation (those who were born in 1945 or earlier), the Baby Boomers (people both between 1946 and 1964), Generation X (those born between 1965 and 1980), the Millennials (people that were born between 1981 and 1996), and lastly, Generation Z (those born in 1997 or later). There were a lot of interesting findings in the data that was used, too. For example, it would be found that Generation Z is more likely to spend their food money on meals that are outside of the home (52.4% of their total food expenses), which equates to an average of roughly $2,772 each year.
