Older People Not Eating Their Vegetables, say UK Researchers

May 1, 2009: 10:48 AM EST
Older people in the UK are not getting their daily fruit and vegetables, says the Changing Ageing Partnership (CAP). Researchers Dr Katherine Appleton from the School of Psychology at Queen's University Belfast and Dr Jayne Woodside found that 22 percent of respondents to their survey were not aware of government guidelines recommending they eat five servings of fruit and vegetables a day. Some thought that two servings were enough. Older people should eat more fruit and vegetables for psychological as well as physical health, Dr Appleton said. The researchers plan to test ways to increase older people’s awareness of the need to eat a healthy diet.
