Eating more fruit and vegetables may make young people calmer, happier and more energetic in their daily life, new research from New Zealand’s University of Otago suggests.

Department of Psychology researchers Dr Tamlin Conner and Bonnie White, and Dr Caroline Horwath from Otago’s Department of Human Nutrition, investigated the relationship between day-to-day emotions and food consumption.

The study was published in the British Journal of Health Psychology.
