According to a report by NBC News “Guidelines are clear — people should get a cup and a half to two cups of fruit every day and two to three cups of vegetables. But three-quarters of Americans do not manage to get that much fruit and 87 percent fail to eat enough vegetables.
“Everyone would be healthier eating more vegetables,” said Marion Nestle, professor of nutrition, food studies, and public health at New York University, who wasn’t involved in the survey.”
