90 Percent of American Youth Not Eating Enough Fruits & Veggies

The Centers for Disease Control issued a report last week with some discouraging news: only about one in ten high school students are eating anything like an adequate amount of fruits and vegetables. If you look at the statistics, it’s clear that the United States is a country in which many young people essentially refuse to eat any produce.

Interestingly, the research shows that American adults on average eat a lot more fruits and vegetables than do teens.
