Study: Adults not eating enough fruits and vegetables

(CNN) -- Only 1 in 10 adults are consuming enough fruits and vegetables a day to meet federal recommendations. That's according to a new study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Guidelines recommend that adults eat at least 1 1/2 to 2 cups of fruit and 2 to 3 cups of vegetables daily depending on gender and age.

Overall, the study finds that more women are meeting both fruit and vegetable recommendations than men, and young adults aged 18-30 are the group with the lowest number of individuals meeting recommended guidelines.

Here are some tips to help you increase your daily consumption of fruit and vegetables:

-Make food fun. Try new recipes and mix it up in the kitchen. Cooking a fruit or vegetable in different ways can enhance the flavor.

-At work: make sure employees have access to fruit and vegetables during meetings and events.

-Think about joining a community garden to increase your interest.

You can help reduce your risk of disease by consuming enough fruits and vegetables every day.
