American millennials aren’t just eating out more than their elders, but also eating a lot more of it.
According to the National Survey on Food Intake and Food Composition (NSF) released this week, the average millennial consumes 4.4 servings of pasta per day.
That’s up from 2.6 servings in 2015 and 1.6 in 2006.
The average American consumes about 2,700 calories a day from pasta, which accounts for almost half of that in this study.
And the average American eats about 3,200 calories of that pasta per week.
That translates to an average of 6.4 pounds of pasta a week.
According to NSF, that translates to about a 1.5-pound pasta every single day.
In fact, Americans eat more pasta a day than they do at any time since the 1970s, the last time the survey was conducted.
Americans also spend a larger amount of time eating pasta than they did in 2006, when Americans ate about 5,300 servings per day on average.
The survey also found that Americans are eating more processed food than they have in years past.
The average American now eats more packaged food than in any time in decades.
According the NSF study, the proportion of packaged food consumed in this way rose from 31.5 percent in 2005 to 34.6 percent in 2015.
That means Americans now eat more than they once did.
And, as the report noted, packaged food has become so prevalent that the average U.S. household spends about four times as much on it as they did 10 years ago.
But the biggest problem for Americans in this decade has been the rise of fast-food chains like Chipotle and Olive Garden.
Those chains are now among the top 20 most popular fast-casual chains in America.
And fast-satisfying food has been an important part of that growth.
According for example to the U.K. Food Standards Agency, the number of fast food restaurants in the U
