QUINCY, Mass. (Business Wire) — As summer comes to an end, and families get back into the school routine, parents consistently find themselves feeling pinched for time. The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company LLC recently surveyed more than 500 shoppers on their dinner habits, finding that more than 40 percent of families rely on recipes that are quick and easy-to-make favorites, above all else.
One way that shoppers have found to hold on to precious family time while still preparing dinner, is by turning to “Go-to Meals.” A “Go-To Meal” is quick to prepare, requires little skill, calls for ingredients that are already on hand, and is family approved. The survey found 88 percent of shoppers relied on “Go-To Meals” such as spaghetti, baked chicken and tacos at least once or twice a week. What’s more, 90 percent of shoppers reported also factoring in the nutrition quality of meals, ranking it as very important or extremely important when deciding what to make for dinner.
The top 5 Go to Meals include:
- Baked/Fried Chicken
- Macaroni & Cheese
