A Look at Fruit and Vegetable Consumption and Access in Southeastern Pennsylvania

March is National Nutrition Month, an annual campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to bring attention to the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. In honor of National Nutrition Month, PHMC’s Center for Data Innovation and Community Health Data Base are highlighting data from the 2012 Southeastern Pennsylvania (SEPA) Household Health Survey on the health and nutrition of residents in this region.  The SEPA Household Health Survey is a survey of 10,000 households in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties.  This article specifically examines fruit and vegetable consumption, access to fruits and vegetables in one’s neighborhood, and how these indicators relate to health status and chronic conditions.
