How Many Servings of Fruits and Veggies Do You Eat Daily?

On the heels of the good news that cancer deaths are down comes America's grade on health — a C-minus. It may be a passing grade, but just barely.

Although we all know eating well and exercising regularly are key to good health, as a nation we are seriously slacking. One surprising statistic was that smoking rates had barely budged in 18 years. I find this shocking because quitting smoking is the best thing a person can do for their health. Fitness-wise, as a nation we are exercising less and eating worse. Only 26 percent of the participants from the rather large pool used for the poll ate five or more servings of fruit and veggies daily. I found that number rather disheartening.

I am curious about you all and if you are in the minority, part of the 26 percent, who eat an average five servings of fruits and veggies daily.
