A brief food frequency questionnaire was used to assess daily fruit and vegetable consumption among 23 699 adults in 16 US states sampled in a random-digit dialing telephone survey.
Men consumed fewer servings per day (3.3) than did women (3.7).
Only 20% of the population consumed the recommended 5 or more daily servings.
Intakes varied somewhat by state and were lower among the young and the less educated.
Efforts are needed to improve fruit and vegetable consumption among all Americans, especially younger adults and those with lower levels of education.
