As per the 10-year study done by the experts, canned food is largely consumed by the youth. Adults who consumed canned vegetables and fruits in the recent past had a better diet score than those who consumed other food products. People consuming canned food might end up consuming more sugar and calories, but the intake of certain nutrients might also be higher, which helps to have a balanced diet.
