MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — How much money do you spend on eating out? A new survey shows millennials are spending quite a bit.

The Food Institute analyzed U.S. Department of Agriculture data and found that millennials spend about 44 percent of their food dollars on eating out.

That’s about $2,900 every year, or about 10 percent more than the last survey in 2010.

Baby boomers spend nearly as much: 40 percent on eating out.

According to reports, the restaurant portion of average food budgets was 34 percent in 1974, and had reached 50 percent in 2014.
