Availability, Affordability, and Consumption of Fruits and Vegetables in 18 countries across Income Levels: Findings from the Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology (PURE) Study

This study assessed the mean fruit and vegetable intake by relative cost for study participants in 18 countries ranging from low- to high-income levels. Consumption of fruit and vegetables is low worldwide, but particularly in low-income countries, and is associated with low availability. Policies worldwide should enhance the availability and affordability of fruits and vegetables.
