Americans Falling Short On Healthy Foods

The government has challenged Americans to have at least 75% of the adult population eating the recommended amount of fruit and 50% eating the right amount of veggies by 2010.

The midterm grades are in and we are failing.

According to the latest data, just over 30% of American adults eat fruit two or more times a day and only
27% eat vegetables at least three times a day.

The report also showed men were more likely than women to eat enough fruit, but women ate more vegetables.

Participants with a college education were most likely to meet the requirements, as well as people over 65 and those who were not obese.
