Millennials: Of milk and cereal

Remember when there were just three types of milk: whole, nonfat, and two percent? Today, there’s almond, soy, coconut and oat milk, just to name a few.

So what is the problem with just regular old cow’s milk? Millennials are increasingly becoming vegan or choosing to go for a more environmentally friendly option. Milk sales have dropped 40% since 1970. And this is not the only childhood staple that millennials are ditching.

Blame it on laziness or on the overly packed schedules of young professionals, but there is a pretty shocking reason why they choose not to eat cereal in the morning. According to the New York Times, 40 percent of millennials surveyed said they do not eat cereal because it was “inconvenient.”

Cereal “was an inconvenient breakfast choice because they had to clean up after eating it.” Yes, apparently washing a spoon and a bowl is simply too much to have to deal with. There is also the pain of putting the box away.
