Behavioral indicators include the consumption of recommended servings of F&V. Policy and environmental indicators include indicators of the availability of healthier food in retail markets, schools, and food support systems.
The behavioral indicators presented in this report are derived from objectives for fruit and vegetable consumption outlined in Healthy People 2010; data are
from CDC's health surveillance systems. The policy and environmental indicators are from multiple data sources and measure several aspects of a state's ability to support fruit and vegetable consumption. Each indicator can be measured in most states. The report gathers data for policy for healthier food retail from three data sources: (1) CDC Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity Legislative Database, (2) National Conference of State Legislatures Health Community Design and Access to Healthy Food Legislative Database, (3) The Food Trust.
