Americans say they will cook at home more in 2018 — but they’ll also turn to meal kits and other shortcuts to make it happen.
About 73 percent of adults make dinner at home at least four nights a week, and 31 percent plan to cook dinner at home more often this year, according to a new survey from Chicago-based online retailer Peapod.
Millennials in particular hope to cook more in 2018, with half saying they intend to make dinners at home more frequently. And 79 percent of teenagers say they want their parents to cook more this year.
Seventy-two percent of those surveyed say they want to cook more at home to save money, 52 percent because they want to eat healthier.
While American want to make dinner more often in 2018, they also want help to make the process as convenient as possible. Meal kits and other ready-to-serve and ready-to-cook mixes topped the list of shortcuts to make at-home cooking easier, according to the survey. Also ranking high were pre-chopped produce, pre-measured ingredients and grocery delivery.
