CDC: South Dakotans Eating Too Few Vegetables

CDC: South Dakotans Eating Too Few Vegetables
PIERRE, SD - A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that South Dakotans aren't eating as many vegetables as people in other states.

Less than 20 percent of people in the state consumed vegetables three or more times per day in 2009, the last year studied. That fell several percentage points than the rate in neighboring states for the same year. In North Dakota, nearly 25 percent of people ate vegetables three times a day. In Minnesota, the rate passed 26 percent.

North Dakota nutritionist Kristin Biskeborn says the findings are "quite dismal." She says the state's Department of Health is studying why the rates are so low.
