Millennials Are Too Lazy to Eat Cereal

According to a survey, 40 percent of millennials said cereal was too inconvenient of a food choice for them. Apparently, no one has time for washing up a spoon and bowl after they eat anymore.

One theory is it has something to do with the lack of chores kids are required to do these days.

A 2014 study showed 82 percent of parents did chores as a child, but only 28 percent of them are making their own kids grab a sponge and bucket.

Sales of cereal have gone down almost 30 percent in the past 15 years. Most people who actually eat breakfast are doing it away from home, opting for things like bagels, yogurt, smoothies and power bars.
