*Estimate should be interpreted with caution due to high variability
Just over one-quarter (27.4%) of Middlesex-London youth age 12–17 reported consuming vegetables and fruits five or more times per day in 2015/16. Although the percent in Middlesex-London was higher than Ontario and the Peer Group, the difference was not statistically significant and needs to be interpreted with caution due to high variability (Figure 13.4.4).
