bag o'chipsIn Brief: A Nation of Snackers

America is becoming a nation of snackers, now snacking our way through half of all eating occasions, according to the summary of a new report released last month.

The Hartman Group report found that 80 percent of our snacking happens at home, suggesting a blurring of the line between meal and snacking.

The report also found that almost half of the time, Americans are eating alone. That's not necessarily a bad thing, with 43 percent of people who eat alone finding it enjoyable, using the occasion to catch up on on other activities.
