Latinos are the largest growing minority group in the United States. With the Latino population growing, their health is of major concern. Chronic diseases are prevalent among Latinos, with heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes, within the top five leading causes of death. Consuming diets high in fruit and vegetables have been linked to reducing rates in chronic diseases. Acculturation has been studied across multiple health behaviors among Latinos, but the results are inconsistent. These inconsistencies lie in the measurement of acculturation. Current studies have measured acculturation and dietary quality by using different methods: language, generational status, years in the U.S., birthplace, and using acculturation scales. Inconsistencies in how acculturation and dietary quality are measured among Latinos have resulted in conflicting findings. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between Latinas' acculturation status and their fruit and vegetable consumption, specifically testing three models. Model 1 assessed acculturation based on years lived in the United States with more years lived in the United States representing higher acculturation. Model 2 was based on the respondent's place of birth and that of their parents and grandparents (United States born vs. foreign born), with United States born representing higher acculturation. Models 3a and 3b were based on their preferred language spoken measured by a Hispanic (Model 3a) or Non-Hispanic domain (Model 3b), using the Marín bidimensional acculturation scale. The study also examined the total variety of fruits and vegetables consumed. This cross-sectional study used baseline questionnaire data from the Entre Familia: Reflejos de Salud project, which regarded the healthy eating and parenting skills of mothers. The sample consisted of 120 mothers who reside in Imperial County. Bivariate and multivariate analyses were conducted using PASW 17.0. Analyses revealed that none of the hypotheses were supported. The study displayed that mean fruit and vegetable consumption was high overall, 5.35 servings per day, and acculturation was not associated. Results were inconsistent with previous research, and highlight the need to further explore acculturation research in relation to measurement in order to reach a consensus for public health research. More specifically, the study highlights that acculturation may not be a factor to consider within Imperial County while chronic diseases, indicated a need to further fruit and vegetable research in this population.
