Fruits and Vegetables Missing From American Diets

What difference does ten years make? When it comes to American eating habits, not a lot.

A government report showed Americans still don't eat enough fruits and vegetables and consumption rates have remained the same or fallen over the past decade.

In a survey of hundreds of thousands of consumers, about one-fourth of U.S. adults claimed to eat vegetables three or more times per day. One-third of Americans consumed fruit or fruit juice at least twice a day.

Federal goals are for three-quarters of Americans to get an adequate amount of fruit and vegetables.

The main reason cited for not consuming enough fruits and veggies every day? People simply don't have time.
