Beat winter blues with your 5-a-day

Beat winter blues with your 5-a-day

Getting your five-a-day is always important, especially at this time of the year when the winter weather can threaten to derail your good mood.

Around six in ten Brits are feeling run down in the run up to Christmas, according to a study from Bimuno Immunaid.

More than a third say they exercise less than normal, while two-fifths believe they are more tired in December.

In order to physically cope with the stresses and strains of Christmas, Dr Ellie Cannon, a GP specialising in family health, claims that everyone should try “to get plenty of rest and to eat well”.

“Children should be trying to get their five-a-day fruit and veg as adults do,” Dr Cannon advised, suggesting that a glass of juice and dried fruit snacks can often be easy ways to ensure your kids are getting vital vitamins.

As well as eating more fruit and vegetables, the expert went on to recommend that daylight can do wonders for improving moods and engaging in vital exercise.
