Fruit and vegetable intake in young children

In the observation to determine, in a sample of healthy children, the extent to which young children's diets include the recommended numbers of fruit and vegetable servings per day, Dr. Dennison BA, and members in the research team at the Mary Imogene Bassett Research Institute, found that preschool-aged children consumed, on average, about 80% of the recommended fruit servings/day, but only 25% of the recommended vegetable servings/day. Low intakes of fruits and vegetables were associated with inadequate intakes of vitamin A, vitamin C, and dietary fiber, in addition to high intakes of total fat and saturated fat(1).
