How America Eats: Uber Eats Unveils National Study on Americans’ Eating Habits

Today, Uber Eats, Uber’s standalone meal delivery app, released findings from its first-ever “How America Eats” survey, capturing surprising data and trends from US adults across generations and regions. The survey reveals Americans’ changing — and unexpected — eating habits, food preferences and dislikes, guilt-inducing delivery attitudes, and more. Some key takeaways include:

  • Brunch is Dying: What was once the trendy meal for Gen X is taking a major hit. Eating supper – a late night meal – at least once a week is now nearly twice as common as brunch
  • At least half of U.S. adults have at some point eaten food that they know is expired (56%) or food that has fallen on the floor (50%)
  • Nearly 90 percent of millennials (89%) admit to texting while dining out
  • 43% of Americans say they are a picky eater

The survey was conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of Uber Eats within the United States between October 26 and November 6, 2017among 1,019 US adults aged 18+.
