One argument is that they are expensive, esp. when purchased fresh. This analysis est. an annual retail price/pd. for 69 forms of fruits & 85 forms of veg.

Therefore, this analysis also est. the no. of serv./pd. of purchased item after excluding all parts of the fruits & veg. not usually eaten. According to this formula, consumers can meet the recommend. of 3 serv. of fruits & 4 servings of veg. daily for 64˘, which represents only 12% of daily food expend. Also, 63% of fruits & 57% of veg. were cheapest in their fresh form. Illus.
