Well, in America, we’ve locked into how to eat and grow big but we’ve missed out on the healthy and strong part of the advice.
Since 1990, the US government and nutrition educators have been engaged in an active effort to get Americans to eat just 5 servings of fruit servings of vegetables a day. Now a couple of new studies are documenting that we don’t even hit that level – much less the 5 to 9 servings currently recommended.
Seems like at a time everyone is trying to fight obesity and eat a healthy diet we’ve slid back to where 62% of the people surveyed didn’t even have ONE serving of whole fruit.
AdvoCare has been aware of of these glaring nutritional gaps for quite some time, which partly explains how many of the recent product launches over the past couple years has addressed needs for more fruit and vegetables, fiber and better overall health. Nothing replaces a healthy, balanced diet, but it helps to know you’ve got help when you need it.
If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out this page on AdvoCare.com listing several articles (including the most recent report released by the CDC) and resources pertaining to America’s lack of fruit and vegetable consumption.
