Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell explained that in order to get Americans to eat healthier, they needed to be educated and provided the proper tools.
She added that some people didn’t even know how to serve fresh fruit – citing as an example the difficulty of cutting a fresh pineapple or a pomegranate.
Burwell made her remarks during a speech at Georgetown University about Obamacare and the importance of healthy living.
Burwell added that “culture and behavior change” were also an important part of changing American’s eating habits.
After she suggested that most of the students in the room probably did, one student admitted that he did not actually eat fruit or exercise that morning.
