The eating habits of Americans isn't quite in sync with U.S. dietary standards, though age, gender and ethnicity do play a role who eats healthiest.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

When it comes to nutritional guidelines, Americans are falling short.  A USDA study analyzed what average Americans eat daily compared to national recommendations.  With a maximum score of 100, both children and adults overall scored just 56.

Seniors had healthier diets, with a score of 65, and results showed women generally have better diets than men and Hispanics are healthier eaters than any other ethnicity.
