New Report Reviews Fruit and Vegetable Consumption in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

NEW REPORT REVIEWS FRUIT AND VEGETABLE CONSUMPTION IN LOW- AND MIDDLE-INCOME COUNTRIES

by A4NH | May 6, 2020

Fruits and vegetables have long been recognized as an important part of the diet, but their consumption remains below recommended levels in many parts of the world, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.

To understand why this is so, A4NH researchers at Wageningen University & Research investigated the consumption of fruits and vegetables worldwide, paying particular attention to low- and middle-income countries, conducting a comprehensive literature review on the drivers, food system components, and food system outcomes related to fruit and vegetable consumption.

Their findings are detailed in a new report, "Fruit and Vegetable Consumption in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: A comprehensive review of fruit and vegetable intake and determinants using a food systems approach."
