Time & Location
About the Event
Are you the Average American?
According to the USDA the average American eats at least 2 snacks daily. This accounts for nearly a quarter of daily calorie intake.
The average daily caloric intake for adults ranges between 1,500 – 2,000 calories. If snacking makes up a quarter of this, snacks alone are responsible for approximately 500 calories.
Because snacking contributes to a large portion of caloric intake, it is important to choose healthy, nutritious items to ensure adequate if not optimal nutrient intake.
CNN’s Health.com reports the average American is overeating by about one-third of the daily caloric need. Lead author of the study, Barry Popkin, Ph.D., a professor of nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill expresses concern over the frequency of eating. The study attributes the rise in caloric intake to the rising number of snacks and meals being consumed.
