Men Have Less Favorable Attitudes Towards Fruits and Vegetables

In a new study conducted by John A. Updegraff, associate professor of social and health psychology at Kent State University in Ohio, men reported less favorable attitudes than women when it came to eating their fruits and vegetables.  Researchers accredited their less favorable attitudes to the notion that, “men don’t believe as strongly as women that fruit and vegetable consumption is an important part of maintaining health”.  The study also showed that “men feel less confident in their ability to eat health foods like fruits and vegetables, especially when they are at work or in front of the television.”
