Articles and reports: 82-003-X202000400001


This study used the most recent national-level data available on Canadians' dietary intakes to describe the quantity and composition of Canadians' vegetable and fruit intake in 2015 and to compare these with estimates from 2004. A secondary objective of this study was to assess the distribution of usual vegetable and fruit consumption and how it relates to recommendations in the 2007 Canada Food Guide, which was the food guide in effect in 2015. Data are from the 2015 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) - Nutrition and the 2004 CCHS - Nutrition (Cycle 2.2).
