For Q4, we look at health and wellness among emerging consumers, exploring fitness, nutrition, and wellness among teens and young adults – otherwise known as Gen Z. Besides being highly connected and tech savvy, Gen Z also has had far more education about health, nutrition, and fitness than previous generations, including Millennials. At the same time, their youth means they’re more able to take their health for granted, so understanding what Gen Z knows and how they act on it is critical for speaking to them in their language.
We’ll uncover the attitudes and aspirations, realities and challenges, and the patterns and habits of this fast-moving and fast-growing group of consumers. The report also explores how Gen Z fared during the pandemic, digging into changes in exercise habits, eating, and mental health over the course of a difficult year.
