More Matters Month

More Matters MonthSeptember is “Fruits & Vegetables – More Matters Month.” Too bad Americans’ fruit and vegetable intake doesn’t seem to care.

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control says that not one US state met the Healthy People 2010 Objectives for fruit and vegetable consumption in 2000-2009. The 2010 Objectives aim for increasing to:

  • 75% the proportion of Americans aged 2+ who eat two or more servings of fruit and increasing to
  • 50% the proportion of Americans aged 2+ who eat three or more servings of vegetables a day

You can check out what percentage of your state ate 2+ servings of fruit or 3+ servings of vegetables per day by looking at the CDC report tables listed here.
