The Shocking Fruit and Veggie Deficit: What 90% of us are NOT Doing

EMERYVILLE, Calif., March 26, 2013 // PRNewswire // - About the Webinar: The statistics are alarming: Even though we think we're getting enough fruits and veggies, the truth is that less than 10% of Americans actually eat the recommended target of fruit each day, and it is even less for our vegetable intake. In fact, only 2% of kids meet the recommended serving of fruits and veggies a day. So, what can be done to help educate the public and reverse this disturbing trend?
