The survey of 1,800 households across the nation found that more than half of parents who are buying organic food regularly are between the ages of 18 and 34, as compared to a little more than a third of Gen-Xers and 14 percent of Baby Boomers. And as more and more members of this generation become parents, the face of the food industry is changing to reflect their shopping habits.
