What percentage of Brussels inhabitants eat the recommended daily amount of fruit and vegetables?

Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis (BISA) - Did you know ? - 10/01/2017

Answer: 18% of the Brussels-Capital Region’s inhabitants

The World Health Organisation recommends eating at least 400 grams of fruit and vegetables every day, which equates to 5 portions.

In 2013, only 18% of Brussels inhabitants achieved this recommended amount, although this is still better than the inhabitants of the Flemish and Walloon Regions, where respectively 11 and 12% of the populations ate the recommended daily amount of fruit and vegetables.
