The article presents the findings of a survey by Harris Interactive Inc. on the eating habits of the U.S. citizens. The findings reveal that almost two-thirds of U.S. adults consider themselves healthy eaters and almost half say they follow some type of health-conscious diet. Furthermore, substantial numbers say they try to incorporate healthy foods into their daily meals and snacks. The adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day seems to ring true for those aged 55 and older, as almost three-quarters also say they try to consume healthy foods for breakfast on a regular basis.
