A new study suggests that a healthy, balanced diet is linked to better brain health and mental health.

The British news agency (PA Media) reported that the study, conducted by researchers in London, sheds light on how dietary preferences affect not only physical health but also tremendously on brain health.

A balanced diet – which includes a balanced amount of vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, eggs, fish and a moderate proportion of dairy products – was associated with better mental health.

The results of the study published in “Nature Mental Health” showed that a balanced diet is linked to higher cognitive functions, and even higher amounts of gray matter in the brain – linked to intelligence – compared to people with a less diverse diet.

Study author Professor Jianfeng Feng, from the University of Warwick, stressed the importance of establishing healthy food preferences at an early stage of life.

“Developing a healthy, balanced diet at an early age is important for healthy development,” he said.

He added: “To promote the development of a healthy, balanced diet, both families and schools must provide a variety of nutritious meals and cultivate an environment that supports their physical and mental health.”
