​The study investigated the relationship between availability of fruits and vegetables and their consumption across racial groups. The 2011-2012 California Health Interview Survey data (36,302) were used for the study.

Findings show the association between perceived availability of fruits and vegetables on consumption differs significantly between non-Hispanic Whites, Hispanics, Blacks, and Asians: (1) the association between fruit consumption and availability is only significant for non-Hispanic whites, and (2) the association between vegetable consumption and availability is only significant for non-Hispanic whites and Hispanics.
This study highlights the importance of interventions that emphasize not only potential access but also social and cultural factors that relate to realized access to healthy food.
