If abysmal, dismaying and frustrating don’t come to mind with these stats, then I don’t know what will (do tell me how you respond as these are my reactions to this data).
Dr. David Katz, pictured here has stated, “Our children will suffer more chronic disease and premature death from eating poorly than from exposure to alcohol, tobacco and drugs combined.”
According to data analyzed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the average teen eats fruits and vegetables 1.2 times/day.
Only 1/3 eat veggies less than once per day and 25% eat fruit less than once per day.
