Fruit and Vegetable Consumption: Looking Ahead to 2020

by Biing-Hwan Lin

Agriculture Information Bulletin No. (AIB-792-7) 4 pp, November 2004

Rising income, higher educational attainment, improved diet and health knowledge, more frequent eating out, and a growing population that will become older and more diverse in race and ethnicity are all shaping U.S. agricultural consumption. These effects are analyzed using data from the 1994-96 and 1998 Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals. We then project the consumption of 25 food groups and 22 commodity groups, including various fruit and vegetable groups, to 2020.

Keywords: Fruits, vegetables, food consumption trends, food costs, food expenditures, food assistance programs, CSFII
