Kids who eat more fruit, vegetables have better mental health

A new study has found that children who eat a better diet, packed with fruit and vegetables, have better mental wellbeing. The study was led by the University of East Anglia (UEA) Health and Social Care Partners in collaboration with Norfolk County Council. The findings of the study were published in the journal ‘BMJ Nutrition Prevention and Health’.

This study is the first to investigate the association between fruit and vegetable intakes, breakfast and lunch choices, and mental wellbeing in UK school children. It shows how eating more fruit and vegetables is linked with better wellbeing among secondary school pupils in particular. Children involved in the study self-reported their dietary choices and took part in age-appropriate tests of mental wellbeing.
