Fruit consumption in the United States

Fruit has long been praised as a healthy and natural alternative to processed sweets and refined sugar. Per capita consumption of fruit in the United States has seen an overall decline between 2000 and 2017. However, much of this decrease can be attributed to canned fruit becoming less popular among Americans.
