Americans are eating significantly more whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes, as well as fruit, according to an analysis of NHANES data from 1999-2012. Consumption of 100% fruit juice and sugar-sweetened beverages decreased as well. However, vegetable intake did not change. The good news: diets rated as ideal increased from 0.7% to 1.5%. The not-so-good news: nearly half of all adults still consume poor quality diets.
