Only one in 10 Americans eat enough fruits and vegetables

Only one in 10 Americans eat enough fruits and vegetables, CDC study finds ... tudy-finds

Only 12% meet the daily fruit recommendation and 9% the vegetable recommendation, and people living in poverty have especially low rates.

Improving these rates is particularly challenging because just 2% of US farmland is devoted to growing fruits and vegetables, according to UCS. Reinhardt said farmers would need to grow almost twice as ...
