CDC: Children Eating More Fruit

Total fruit consumption increased by 12 percent among children ages 2-18 between 2003 and 2010, though vegetable consumption remained unchanged, according to a study released last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The study analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys; researchers concluded that no demographic group within this age range is meeting the Healthy People 2020 target for vegetables, while only children ages 2-5 are meeting the goal for fruit.
