The study, published in Nutrition Journal, comes from Concordia University, which examined data from 94,000 people aged 18 to 69. They determined that fruit and vegetable consumption is correlated to education.
Those with a lower education and income ate about 4.5 servings per day compared to those with a higher education and income, who surpassed the recommended daily intake benchmark and ate over five servings. Also, people who were better educated reached for carrots and apples more frequently.
Some other interesting breakdowns in the demographics showed that women nosh on fruits and vegetables more (5.4) than men (4.5). Meanwhile, single people, smokers and 40-year-old adults without any children at home were the lowest consumers of the good produce.
