Under 15% Of U.S. Kids Getting Enough Fruits And Veggies

Fewer than 15% of the two million American elementary school-age children eat the recommended five or more daily servings of fruits and vegetables. The dismal discovery from a new analysis of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III) data means that the vast majority of U.S. children are at increased risk for obesity and numerous chronic diseases.

“Both at snack time and mealtime, the majority of American kids are not getting a very big nutrient bang for their calorie buck. They are eating high-fat, low-nutrient foods that deny them necessary vitamins and minerals,” comments Gladys Block, PhD, the leader of the analysis. “Simple substitution of a fruit or vegetable for a high fat snack could go a long way in reducing their risks of becoming overweight or, in the long term, developing diabetes, heart disease and other chronic, debilitating conditions. Parents and other care givers need to help children make more healthful food choices.”

NHANES III, a federally sponsored survey, shows that 75% of American children ages 6 to 11 years old eat a diet with more fat than the maximum U.S. recommended level of 30%. Moreover, on any given day, 45% of children eat no fruit and 20% eat less than one serving of vegetables. The average 6 to 11 year-old eats only 3.5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day — achieving only half the recommended 7 servings per day for this age group
