Most Americans Skip Fruits and Vegetables
October 02, 2010
Consumption of fruits and vegetables has increased significantly in only one U.S. state during the past decade. And all 50 states continue to fall short of recommended daily intake.
Idaho alone had a significant increase in the proportion of residents who consumed fruits and vegetables, but even in that case, the absolute increases were small. And 10 states had small but statistically significant decreases.
ABC News reports:
“Overall, about a third of American adults ate at least two servings of vegetables daily during 2009, and about a fourth consumed at least three servings of vegetables daily.”
