Not just physical, fruits and vegetables good for mental health

According to the researchers, encouraging better dietary habits may not just be beneficial to physical health in the long run but may also improve mental well-being in the shorter term.

 

While it's well-established that eating fruits and vegetables can benefit physical health. A recent study suggests that it may also benefit psychological well-being.

 

The research showed a positive association between the quantity of fruit and vegetables consumed and people's self-reported mental well-being.

 

Specifically, the findings indicate that eating just one extra portion of fruits and vegetables a day could have an equivalent effect on mental well-being as around 8 extra days of walking a month
