This report uses data from the 2014-16 Eating & Health Module (EHM) of the American Time Use Survey to present national statistics on eating and health patterns for the adult population as a whole and a wide variety of demographic subgroups. It also examines whether and how select behaviors have changed over time using data from the 2006-08 EHM. On an average day over 2014-16, Americans age 18 and older spent about 65 minutes eating and drinking as a primary activity, down 5 percent relative to an average day over 2006-08. The report finds significant differences across demographic subgroups in eating and health patterns, such as in prepared food purchases and physical activity, which may contribute to variation in nutrition and dietrelated health outcomes across different segments of the U.S. population.
