OBJECTIVE: To examine the association of fruit and vegetable intake, acculturation, and BMI in Hispanics living in southern Nevada.
METHODS: Logistic regression was employed to assess the relationship of acculturation to daily intake of fruit and vegetables.
RESULTS: Regression showed that greater acculturation (p = .002) and being male (p = .011) are predictive of lower fruit and vegetable consumption.
CONCLUSIONS: Our results for the HA population are consistent with national data. To understand the incentives and barriers to healthier eating within southern Nevada Hispanic populations and to effectively address the resource and programming needs, longitudinal research will be required.
