If crispy bacon and fluffy scrambled eggs are what get you out of bed in the morning, you’re not alone. A new survey conducted by the National Honey Board gives a glimpse at how modern Americans do breakfast.
The survey comes just in time for Better Breakfast Month, which reminds us that regularly eating a healthy, balanced breakfast can mean lower BMI and better focus throughout your day.
Of the 92% of Americans who surveyed that they enjoy a breakfast at least once a week, 69% said that eggs are their favorite food in the morning. Bacon and sausage came in second with 46% of the vote. Cereal, fruit, oatmeal, waffles/pancakes/french toast, toast or english muffin, hash browns, bagel, yogurt, breakfast burrito, and donut/muffin/croissant rounded out the top 10.
Despite busy schedules, most Americans find time to eat breakfast at home (3 in 4), but 18% do so either at their desk or on route to work — most commonly those who live in big cities.
Nearly half of people surveyed said they prefer something sweet for breakfast. Generation Z was even more likely to respond (60%) that they like wants a sweet element to their breakfast — not surprisingly since this includes todays tweens and teens.
The National Honey Board conducted the survey to draw attention to the benefits of a good breakfast. People also surveyed that they were more likely to eat a healthy breakfast — liked oatmeal or waffles — if it was flavored with some honey.
