#Flash: Eating Vegetables And Fruits Good For Mental Health
A survey was conducted to investigate the association between dietary choices and mental well being among school children. Data was collected from almost 9,000 children who self reported their dietary choices and took part in age-appropriate tests of mental well being. It was seen that children who ate a traditional breakfast experienced better well-being than those who only had a snack or drink and secondary school children who drank energy drinks for breakfast had particularly low mental well being scores. It is suggested that public health strategies and school policies should be developed to ensure good quality nutrition for all children both before and during school in order to optimize mental wellbeing and empower children to fulfill their full potential.
