Slovak Farmers Cooperative Survey:
Slovaks consume more vegetablesThe popularity of meat, milk and some other foodstuffs has declined in Slovakia in the past 20 years, but vegetables are on the rise.
Slovaks have less of a taste for meat and milk compared to 20 years ago, while the consumption of cereals, salt and sugar is also dropping, according to a recent analysis of the Slovak Farmers Cooperative (SFD).
According to the Spectator, Slovaks also eat slightly more vegetables, but the consumption of fruit has decreased. The annual consumption of vegetables per inhabitant is less than 85 percent of the recommended amount, and even less than two thirds for fruit. The Slovak consumption of potatoes has declined by more than 40 percent in the past 20 years, while legumes have declined by about 20 percent.
