According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), less than ten percent of high school students are eating the combined recommended daily amount of fruits and vegetables.
The report found that only 13 percent of U.S. High school students get at least 3 servings of vegetables per day while 32 percent get two servings per day. The report states that there is a gap between what people should be eating and what they are actually eating.
A quick way to get the daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables is to make a glass of fresh, nutrient rich juice. Caricoʼs Nutri-Tech Juice Extraction System is an easy way to make juice and is great for teenagers and parents on the go. One glass can provide over half of the essential vitamins and nutrients that youʼll need for an entire day. For even more tasty fun you can save the pulp and use it to make muffins or even a carrot cake.
