Though the amount varies from country to country; they eat at least 40% of the daily recommended  amount of fruit and over 20% of the recommended consumption of vegetables.

The opposite is true in Italy, where the consumption of fruit and vegetable products overall is much higher and the poorest consume more than the richest.

On average, 64% of the EU citizens consume fresh or frozen fruit daily. Some countries, including Italy (85%), Portugal (81%) and Spain (77%) enjoy fruit abundantly, in amounts well above the average, while the lowest consumption is in Lithuania (37%), Bulgaria (37%), Latvia (35%), and Hungary with 40%. Just 1.6% of EU citizens eat no fruit at all.
