Gardening Leads to Better Eating Habits, Quality of Life
Older adults who spend time gardening are more likely to eat healthier foods, and report better quality of life and higher energy levels than other seniors who don’t garden.
Texas A&M and Texas State University conducted a survey of nearly 300 adults age 50 and over.
Older adults also reported significantly better eating habits, consuming more fruits and vegetables than those who did not. Their study appears in the journal HortTechnology.
