Nutritionists recommend that fruits and vegetables make up at least half of the diet. Only 22 percent of Poles met this condition in May, although this is as much as 4 percent more than in April, according to Kantar data on the consumption of vegetables and fruit.
The study was conducted as part of the "Poland tastes" project, commissioned by the National Association of Fruit and Vegetable Producer Groups. In May, apples again enjoyed the greatest popularity among all fruits. 90 percent of Poles ate apples, with 23% doing it daily. Strawberries came second (44 per cent), and blueberries third (43 per cent). Both strawberries and blueberries were consumed daily by 3 percent of respondents. Compared to April, an increase has been recorded in the consumption of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and other berries, as well as products made from them.
The top three vegetables in May have been tomatoes (94 percent), carrots (93 percent) and cucumbers (91 percent), with 26%, 15% and 14% of respondents, respectively, consuming them every day. Also, lettuce consumption increased by 10%, while that of spring onions grew by 13% and that of radish was 19% greater.
