A new study by Aston University’s School of Life and Health Sciences has shown that those who use social media are more likely to eat fruit and veg, or snack on junk food, if they think their friends are doing the same.
The new research found that participants in the study ate an extra fifth more fruit and veg portions for every portion they thought their social media peers ate. If they believed their friends ate their ‘five a day’, they ate an extra portion themselves.
