A recent National Fruit & Vegetable Alliance Report Card evaluates critical policies and programs impacting fruit and vegetable availability and consumption over the past ten years. Overall, the positive impact to consumption has been minimal despite proven scientific data continuously showing that a diet high in fruits and vegetables helps maintain a healthy weight and reduces the risk of several serious, chronic diseases. Dr. Pivonka will review the Report Card, with an eye to the future and the role the ASPHN Fruit & Vegetable Council and state public health professionals can take. Join here
