28% OF AMERICANS SAY THEY HAVE EASY ACCESS TO HEALTHY FOODS


You may be like many Americans who seek out healthy options at the grocery store for their family, only to have difficulty finding the items that will be healthiest.

If all of that sounds familiar, you’re in good company. A new survey reveals that the vast majority of Americans want to eat healthy, but many find it difficult to access the most nutritious options.

A report from the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation and the American Heart Association found that 95 percent of shoppers in the United States say they always or sometimes seek healthy food options.

While the overwhelming majority want the best foods, only 28 percent say it’s easy to find these products, and 11 percent report it’s just too difficult to track them down at all.
