And how do Parents feel about Grocery Shopping?

In our recent Insights studies about women and their views on buying food for the family and grocery shopping, it turns out

  • 51% of parents still want an in-store experience. “It can be a bit labour intensive to buy online and I prefer looking for fresh food when in store.”
  • When it comes to Home Cooking: 67% are looking up recipes online.“I find as we are shopping less often so I need to be more prepared. We are definitely trying new things as I’ve more time at home! I’ve also noticed a lot less waste in the house as I’m much more conscious of planning based on what we have in our press or fridge. Lots more fresh meals!”
  • Re Food Waste: 44% said they are producing less food waste at home. “I think our food waste for 1 week increased as I did a clear out of presses etc. However apart from that week it has decreased. I find we are wasting less fruit, salad and turkey/ham slices. Plus with no school lunches we aren’t getting back half eaten sandwiches or mushy bananas etc.”
