The majority of Millennials will be ‘remaking tradition holiday dishes plant-based‘ this year, according to a new poll. 

The survey, conducted by OnePoll in conjunction with Eat Just, Inc., ‘aimed to uncover how different generations feel about change as the holidays’ approach’. 

Out of 1,000 Millennials and 1,000 Baby Boomers, thirty-one percent of all respondents said they will be planning for a family member eating more plant-based during the holidays.

The poll also found 70 percent of households will be making at least one plant-based dish this holiday season, and that Millennials (74 percent) are more likely than Baby Boomers (49 percent) to try and eat healthy over the festive period.  

‘A common ground’

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, a spokesperson for Eat Just, Inc. said: “Finding a common ground between millennials and baby boomers can be a challenge.

“This holiday season, despite the reluctance for parents to adopt healthier lifestyles, millennials will be serving up healthier versions of traditional holiday dishes — in the hopes of bringing everyone together, even if it is virtual.”

“Americans are seeking ways to enjoy their favorite, traditional holiday dishes while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

“As a result, people will be switching things up with their holiday menus by incorporating more plant-based ingredients into their dishes to accommodate a variety of diets and lifestyles.”
