Boomers age 45-54 spend $123 weekly on food, compared with $102 for 25- to 34-year-olds and $75 for 65- to 74-year-olds. Moreover, over 10 million boomer households allot $125 or more weekly to grocery expenditures alone, while nearly 20 million visit either family or fast-food restaurants 6 or more times monthly.

In doing so, this data-rich report tabulates and examines baby boomer variations by age segment, gender, race/ethnicity, marketing region, and socio-economic factors.
