U.S. Adults Not Eating Healthy
Only One in 10 Meet National Guidelines
Just 9 percent of U.S. adults eat enough vegetables and only 12 percent eat enough fruit every day, concludes a recent study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
National guidelines for adults recommend at least one-and-a-half to two cups per day of fruit and two to three cups of vegetables. Consumption is lowest among men, young adults and adults living in poverty.
