Fruits and veggies can improve your mood

We all know eating fruits and vegetables makes us healthier, but they can make us happier as well.

A study in New Zealand looked at how certain foods affected the mood of a group of young adults who kept a food and feelings journal.

There was a strong link between positive mood and higher fruit and veggie consumption, but not other foods.

Researchers say, regardless of your body mass index, eating seven to eight servings a day could help you see a noticeable improvement in your mood.
