Healthy Eating

Key Findings: 
  • Nearly 40% of the population of Middlesex-London reported that they ate five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day in 2013/14 (Fig. 7.1).
  • Females were more likely to report eating at least five servings a day than males in 2013/14.  This difference was statistically significant (Fig. 7.1).
  • There appears to be a decrease in the proportion of the population eating five or more fruit and vegetable servings a day between 2003 and 2011/12 in Middlesex-London, though this decrease was not statistically significant (Fig. 7.1).
