Children Eating More Fruit Not More Vegetables

The amount of whole fruit children, 2-18 years old, ate increased by 67% from 2003 to 2010 and replaced fruit juice as the main contributor of fruit to children’s diets.

Child care, schools, and school districts can support efforts to increase fruit and vegetable consumption in children.
