dc.description.abstractHBSC Ireland 2010 has found that 20.1% of schoolchildren in Ireland report consuming fruit every day more than once (18.0% of boys and 22.2% of girls). This figure has remained stable since 2006 (19.4%). The percentage of children who consume fruit daily more than once is higher among younger children; 20.7% of boys and 27.0% of girls aged 10-11 years vs. 17.0% of boys and 21.5% of girls aged 15-17 years. Children who consume fruit more than once daily are more likely to live with both parents, find it easy to talk to their parents or best friend and to like school. They are less likely to spend four or more evenings with friends or to report feeling pressured by school. Fruit consumption in this factsheet refers to children who report consuming fruit every day more than once.en_US
