Study Links Gardening to Eating More Fruits and Vegetables

Researchers reported in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that young gardeners eat more greens during their first year of college. A recent study that included more than 1,100 freshmen at eight US universities found those with recent or childhood gardening experience ate 20 percent more servings of fruits and vegetables, compared with those who had never gardened. Among the more than 5,000 students considered for participation in the study, 85 percent did not get the recommended daily servings for fruits and vegetables.
