Baby Boomers Not Afraid To Spend Money On Functional Foods

February 9, 2010: 01:20 AM EST
The aging baby boom generation has a thing about being healthy, if their food purchasing patterns during the ongoing recession are any indication. A new report on key trends in food, nutrition and health finds that baby boomers are willing to pay top dollar for functional foods that promise a healthy heart, digestion, or bones and joints, even if it means sacrificing expensive luxury goods. Among key trends reported by Julian Mellentin for 2010 are: digestive health (actually a “mega-trend”), health benefits that are also convenient, “feel the benefit” (most powerful marketing message), fruit and superfruit, weight management, and healthy snacking.
