While women are more inclined to believe eating fruits and vegetables is healthier, a survey by SupermarketGuru shows men are not the “meat and potatoes” crowd they used to be. Among the men surveyed, 36 percent say they “eat a well-balanced diet without anyone’s help” and 56 percent said they “try to incorporate fruit and vegetables in every meal.”
When asked which statement best applies to your fruit and vegetable consumption, 39 percent of men said, “I do eat enough fruits and vegetables” and another 16 percent said, “I do not eat enough.” For the females answering based on a male in their household, 28 percent said, “He does eat enough fruits and vegetables” and—similar to the men—17 percent said the male in their household “does not eat enough.”
The survey also asked about habits of males when it comes to shopping for food. Results revealed that 44 percent of men buy all or most of the food eaten at home. Only 10% of men do little to none of the food shopping. Even more interesting, when asked which sex buys most of the fruits and vegetables for the household, both men and women reported it was a 50/50 split.
