Fruit consumption is still deficient in Spanish society

Desserts

According to statistics, in Spain the necessary fruit is not consumed, there is a certain resistance to this healthy delicacy. The World Health Organization recommends taking at least 400 grams of fruit daily, the equivalent of a couple of servings a day.

Despite this, up to 43% of the Spanish population does not adapt to this advice. If adults do not want to consume fruit, either due to neglect, lack of appetite, etc., we should not encourage the little ones to imitate that behavior, perhaps this way it is simpler and more convincing than to recommend it is necessary to set an example.

Statistics indicate that up to 57% of children do not take the necessary fruit either and those who are in charge of the children are the elders, therefore, if the little ones fail in this aspect, it is actually because we are the adults who that we fail and we do not have the necessary means so that daily fruit consumption is adequate, at least in children.It is necessary to remember the 5 a day campaign, although it has been in force for some years and is renewed each year without giving the necessary fruits (pun intended).

What is the problem we have with the fruit? According to a study by the Spanish Society of Community Nutrition and a company in the fruit sector, peeling the fruit is a nuisance and apparently a nuisance for more than 50% of respondents.

It is clear that the appropriate formula has not been found to enhance fruit consumption, this is a pending task, do you know the formula?
