Indeed eat what you normally would, however when on holiday people don't and fruit and veg can go out of the window.
As you say no one is going to get scurvy or malnutrition in a couple of weeks. It takes months with no vitamin C to get scurvy. But If someone weren't to eat for a couple of days they would soon know about it. It's extremely unlikely that someone would do this but there's hole at the other end of the digestive system. If you put food in one end and don't have waste products coming out of the other for a few days, which can be quite possible with such changes in diet this can have a detrimental effect on how a person feels.
