My finicky teenage son can’t be bothered with eating breakfast. “It’s a pain,” he whines. “It takes too much time, so not worth it.” I nag in vain, pathetically following him around with granola bars and glasses of milk. But even those are too much for him to “deal with” in the morning.
Turns out he’s not the only millennial too busy -- or, let’s face it, too lazy -- to eat the most important meal of the day. Recent market research suggests that nearly 40 percent of millennials won’t even slurp cereal. Of course not. It’s too darn hard to rinse the bowl out when they’re done.
