The 2020-2025 United States Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee’s scientific report released today reinforces what research has consistently demonstrated: eating at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day is one of the most important steps Americans can take to enjoy healthier lives.

Now, the opportunity is to translate the Committee’s scientific review into practical and meaningful guidance as the 2020-2025 US Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGAs) are developed.

As the only non-profit dedicated to helping Americans improve their intake of all forms of fruits and vegetables, the Produce for Better Health Foundation {{BB #:157162}} is ready to assist in this translation and in helping inform Americans on how they can put this critical dietary guidance into action.

In fact, PBH commissioned a comprehensive review of the literature recently published in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, which reinforces the DGAC scientific report findings on the important role of fruits and vegetables to promote health and help reduce chronic disease risk.

Unfortunately, nine out of 10 Americans do not eat enough fruits and vegetables, so PBH, along with its multi-sector network of members, is even more committed to addressing this consumption crisis and identifying innovative solutions to change behaviors for the future.

With our extensive digital ecosystem ( and social platforms, as well as our exclusive network of more than 20 ambassadors reaching Americans online, at retail and in communities, PBH can bring the DGAs to life and help close the fruit and vegetable consumption gap with our unique, behavior-based Have A Plant® movement.

With our comprehensive consumption data tracking and consumer behavior research, as well as our extensive education platforms, PBH is ready to assist US Department of Agriculture and US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), along with other state and federal agencies, in bringing creative and meaningful dietary guidance to Americans, so they can enjoy fruits and vegetables for happier, healthier lives.
