U.S. Fruit and Vegetable Consumption: Who, What, Where, and How Much

No 33699, Agricultural Information Bulletins from United States Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service

Abstract: For good health, USDA urges American consumers to eat more fruits and vegetables-5 to 9 servings per day-and to choose a healthier, more varied mix of these foods. The variety of produce available to Americans has blossomed in recent years, but are consumers responding? The first step in determining this is to ask who eats what, where, and how much. Since 2000, ERS has been analyzing data from national USDA food consumption surveys, and we are ready to share some highlights.
