Boys making food are back in fashion, with some groups claiming to be the fastest-growing demographic in the country.
According to the Boy Scout Council, which has more than 6,000 chapters nationwide, a new study by the nonpartisan organization found that more than 50% of boys who made a dish at least once in the past year were now making it again.
The report, titled Making It Again: The Boy Scouts Are Making It Back, shows that more boys than girls are making the dish again.
In the last year, the survey found that boys made almost one-third of the nation’s dishes, while girls made about half.
The percentage of boys making a dish more than doubled, from about 3% to 5%.
The figure rose to 8% for girls, from 3% in 2015.
The Boy Scouts also reported that the percentage of their chapters that are catering to boys has increased from about 10% to 13%.
They said that this was driven by increasing numbers of boys and men seeking out opportunities to serve food.
The organization has been criticized for the lack of diversity in its ranks.
Last year, The Associated Press found that only 22% of the 2,828 Scout councils nationwide were female.
The trend is also showing up in the Boy’s and Girl Scout councils, which reported similar increases in membership last year.
A spokeswoman for the Boy Councils said in a statement that the organization has made strides in promoting diversity over the last few years.
“We know there are still many barriers to the full participation of boys in Scouting, including the fact that the majority of Scouting is conducted by boys and girls, and that girls do not make up a majority of scouts,” the spokeswoman said.
The National Council for Men said the numbers are even higher for girls and that the Scouts are doing an excellent job of diversifying its membership.
The council’s spokesman, Tim Ewing, said the recent increase in girls serving in councils was a sign of progress.
“What is important is that the leadership and leadership values of the Scouting Movement are being reflected, and the leadership values are being promoted and encouraged by the young men,” Ewing said.
“It is not just the numbers, but also the way the leadership of the organization is being promoted.
It’s a big change.”
The Boy Scout Movement is the world’s oldest and largest all-boy organization, with more than 4 million chapters.
The Boy Scout Law states that all boys under the age of 18 can join.
