Did you know we are supposed to be eating
2 servings of fruit a day along with 3 servings of vegetables?
As in, every. single. day?
Well, not too many people know that either.
According to the CDC's recent state-by-state report
only 14% of U.S. adults are getting there daily fruits and vegetables,
and only 9.5% of teens.
With Mississippi coming in last with a total of 8.8% overall,
Washington D.C. is getting the most daily intake of the goodness.
Next time you go to grab a piece of bread or a bowl of cereal for a snack, grab an apple or cut up a nice, tangy orange pepper.
These small, daily choices will make a world of a difference with not only your energy levels, brain activity, and weight control, but also your overall health and well-being.
