NEW YORK (AP) - Most U.S. adults still aren't eating nearly enough fruits and vegetables.
In a large national survey, only 13 percent said they ate the recommended amount of fruit each day. And only 9 percent had enough vegetables.
Californians - a big produce-growing state - ate the most fruits and vegetables. Tennessee was at the bottom of the fruit list, and Mississippi was last in eating vegetables.
The findings come from a 2013 national telephone survey of hundreds of thousands of Americans. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the study Thursday.
