Here’s something to be happy about. According to a recent study by the University of Reading, we who are childless or childfree eat healthier than our parenting counterparts. On average, we eat about 2kg more fruits and vegetables over a fortnight, or translated into American English, more than 2lbs a week!
According to an article on Physorg.com:
The study revealed that the presence of children in a household leads to a lower level of demand for fruit and vegetables and meat, and an increased demand for milk and dairy, cereals and potatoes.
The study took place in the UK, so I would add pizza, mac and cheese, and spaghetti to that list for the U.S.
So, if you haven’t had your recommended 5-a-day today, the question is, why not?
