Boomers: Will You Pay More to Eat Healthy?

1 Comment

Tags: baby boomers

healthy eatingMost baby boomers say "yes" to eating healthy; "no thanks" to paying more for healthful foods when dining out.

New research from the NPD Group says 70% of baby boomers don't expect to pay more for healthier fare on the restaurant menu. Their recommendation to restaurants is keep consistent pricing on healthy and less health options.

Eating healthy is one of the ways to stay healthier and lower health care bills as we age. And a challenge since it requires some significant changes in behavior. Yet, eating healthy and losing weight can have significant impact not just on your lifestyle, but on your pocketbook. Being average weight can reduce your costs on health care, including doctors visits and prescription drugs. Lower weight can even mean lower costs on insurance, like long-term care insurance and life insurance.

Lots of good reason for boomers and seniors to eat healthier. Not to mention just feeling better.

So on your next visit to a restaurant, would you be willing to pay more for a healthier meal?

    I would be willing to pay slightly more, but not a lot more. I sometimes wonder why it should cost more to put LESS salt in something. We have to be careful of some so-called healthy foods. Often times when a company takes the salt out of a product they add more fat to make up for the taste lost from the reduction in salt. If they do that, I'm certainly not interested in paying more.
