What’s on Your Table? How America’s Diet Has Changed Over the Decades

What’s on Your Table? How America’s Diet Has Changed Over the Decades. Pew Research Center. Drew DeSilver. December 13, 2016

While the nation’s eating habits don’t change all that much from year to year, looking at them over 40 or more years shows some significant changes. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
