Mini meals on trend

 

You could easily believe that the end of traditional meals is nigh. We no longer restrict our food intake to breakfast, lunch and dinner. Instead, these meals are increasingly being replaced by several small dishes that you eat during the day. And they have to do a lot more than simply be sweet, fatty or salty.

 
 

For in between meals

While snacks used to be eaten to kill hunger pangs or as a small treat between meals, these small snacks now represent a new, fluid food culture. “Snackification” is the trend whereby you eat small but complete, nutritious and healthy meals instead of consuming two or three times more.

 
 

Measured enjoyment

The snack culture has removed itself from fixed times and places. You eat when and where it fits. A juicy burger on the park bench, a wrap during a walk, a small bento box during a break, a piece of quiche on the train – you can enjoy it as you wish, with food partners or alone. In some countries, small meals and finger foods (mezze, tapas, antipasti) have a long tradition, but the trinity of breakfast, lunch and dinner is slowly disappearing, even with us.

 

Snacks on trend

In her Food Report 2020, Hanni Rützler described snackification as “an expression of a more flexible, spontaneous and individual society”.Supermarkets and restaurants, but also butchers, canteens and bakers will increasingly have to adapt to the new food culture in order to be able to meet the demands. When it comes to sales and distribution, vending machines, to-go corners and delivery services are opening up new paths. We need healthy, varied and creative snacks that suit our flexible and mobile lives.
