Portland Is #1 In The Country For Eating Fruits & Vegetables
Well here's something for Portland to be proud of! According to a new study, we're a bunch of really healthy eaters. A new study by WalletHub ranks the healthiest cities in the country. Overall Portland didn't do too bad - we came in at #23 out of 174 cities ranked. But here's the thing that really grabbed our attention - looking at the cities with the lowest percentage of adults not eating fruits and vegetables, Portland is number one!
And as you can see, our fellow New England city Burlington, VT came in at number two. Also, Burlington was the highest ranking overall city in New England, coming in at number seventeen.
The study was based on a variety of factors, including 43 key indicators, including cost of medical visit to fruit and vegetable consumption to fitness clubs per capita.
