Abstract:

Nutrition is an important determinant of health. Inadequate consumption of fruit and vegetables is one factor that can play a role in increased morbidity and premature death. A recent European Commission White Paper advocated increasing the consumption of fruit and vegetables as one of a number of tools to offset a worsening trend of poor diets and low physical activity. Proper nutrition assists in preventing a number of obesity‐related chronic conditions, including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, stroke, certain cancers, musculoskeletal disorders and a range of mental health conditions (European Commission, 2007).
