Getting Better with Age (Hint: Start by Eating Fruits and Vegetables!)

Join Produce for Better Health (PBH) Foundation on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 from 2:00-3:00pm EST to learn about what makes adults 50+ tick when it comes to the age-old advice to eat more fruits and vegetables.


As a food, nutrition and produce-loving community, we have long been voraciously advocating, motivating, and innovating towards increased fruit and vegetable intake with varied results. Trended research conducted by the Produce for Better Health Foundation (PBH) shows increased consumption in some populations and declines in others. Among the most surprising findings? Adults 50+ — typically considered the highest fruit and vegetable consumers, and the ones we have historically been able to count on to “eat their fruits and vegetables” as they told us growing up — have demonstrated double digit declines in produce intake over recent years. But why? This is a burning question asked and answered collectively by PBH and the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation through consumer research, with support from AARP. As you may have guessed, it’s not as simple as commanding that fruit and vegetables be eaten.


During this webinar, we will present a complementary package of targeted findings and rich insights designed to facilitate understanding of various segments of adults 50+ and help reverse their downward produce consumption trend. Bonus insights on leveraging technology and online shopping platforms will be included.
