Iowans Not Eating Produce

   The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Iowans are not eating as much produce as they should.
   The "2013 State Indicators Report on Fruits and Vegetables" shows a surprising number (39.8%) of adults say they miss their recommended serving of fruit every day.  At the same time, about a quarter (26.9%) say they don't eat any vegetables. 
   The results are just as bad for kids.
   More than a third of adolescents say they skip eating both fruit (36.1%) and vegetables (35.1%) on a daily basis.
   Iowans eat an average of one fruit and a vegetable and a half per day.    That makes the Hawkeye state one of only five where folks usually eat less than two servings of each.
