Abstract

Benefits of consuming fruits and vegetables are documented, yet more than 75 percent of Americans do not eat the recommended servings advised by the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate. Through a self-reported post/pre behavior checklist, the Utah State University Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program–Education (SNAP-Ed) demonstrated an increase in fruit and vegetable consumption in low-income individuals through consistent education incorporating four or more lessons over a period of five years.
